The flick that shot at the Weir River Farm in Hingham follows a chicken farmer who agrees to be on a reality show to save the
family farm. Posey co-stars as Angelica Lovecraft, the host of the reality show called “Cut the Crap” that documents local actress Christy Scott Cashman who not only wrote the indie but stars as Millie Bartlett. A chicken farmer who will cook up anything to save her farm. “The experience changes both women as they discover the true meaning of success,” Cashman said.
Christy and her husband Jay Cashman will host the Boston Premiere of, The Love Guide, this Tuesday June 19th to benefit Friends of Boston’s Homeless and The Farm at Boston’s Long Island Shelter.
This special eve will include cocktails at the Revere Hotel located in the Theater District, and a viewing of the film starring Parker Posey, who will mosey along as well.

It’s hard to believe the summer is almost halfway over. On July 18th, the wrap party for the cast and crew of What’s Your Number was held at Splash nightclub in Boston. Since mid-May, the romantic comedy starring Anna Faris had taken over Beantown, shooting on Newbury Street, Post Office Square Park, the North End, Beacon Hill, Boylston Street, and the docks on Boston Harbor, among many other locations. As for what is left of the summer months, there are a number of productions that will be taking advantage of that ongoing Massachusetts tax credit by filming around the city and beyond.
Moneyball, starring Brad Pitt, at one time was rumored to be shooting in Boston this summer. That plan was scrapped and the production commenced shooting at the Oakland Coliseum on July 26 and will run through Aug. 6.
On Monday, June 28, director Martha Coolidge began filming Sunny Side Up in Boston. The film follows the zany story of a woman who teams up with a famous fitness pro from a fictional reality show to save her family’s chicken farm.
