“Tomorrow’s Today,” Timothy Hines’ comedy feature film about a hopeless grifter trying to reform his ways has been selected to play at the Spring Grove-Caledonia Film Festival with guests Daniel Baldwin and Ed Asner July 23-25.
The Spring Grove-Caledonia Film Festival, featuring 42 movies, two plays, a parade and an award ceremony, welcomes this year’s special guest of honor Daniel Baldwin, last year’s guest of honor Ed Asner and (via Zoom) Alec Baldwin – along with several other filmmakers who will be participating in live talk-backs after their films’ screenings.
“Everything happens for a reason,” producer Susan Goforth says with joviality, “and we are all so pleased because ‘Tomorrow’s Today’ addresses grief, recovery, self-empowerment and identity with humor, laughter and tears, and I think we all need that right now, and that our comedy fits so well with Daniel’s documentary and the themes of the Spring Grove-Caledonia Festival, we are all very excited to be included.”
Above: “Tomorrow’s Today” is a comedic recovery story about Charlie Boy, a hopeless grifter trying to reform his ways, who collides with a loser named Tommy G who thinks he’s a dead ringer for Tom Hardy. They rob a liquor store to pay a gambling debt to a mob boss, only to find out the store is owned by the mobster! Pictured here Charlie Boy (Greg Kritikos) grieves with his dear friend and sage, Luca played by Academy Award nominee Burt Young, in “Tomorrow’s Today”.
Among the many events taking place during the festival weekend is a prayer service scheduled for Sunday, July 25 at 10 a.m. at St. Patrick Catholic Church in Waukon. Daniel Baldwin will be the special guest speaker for that event.
