There was a time when independent films had such a reserve of good will that followers flocked to them simply because they weren't part of the mainstream. Now the truth can be told: a film isn't worth seeing just because it was made by well-meaning people outside the studio system.
This is the least of Hollywood's worries, for my money. The major studios have a bigger problem -- such as the fact that they so seldom make movies with serious themes or content. And they never address actual political issues if they can avoid it.
You've Been Trumped, a film that has become a voice for Scottish locals opposed to Donald Trump's development of a golf course and resort north of Aberdeen, won the Award for Social Justice at the Hamptons International Film Festival.
