The Sunshine State is Florida. The fictional setting of John Sayles' new film is Delrona Beach, a community upon which change is being forced. Property developers are buying up land now seen as a prime location for building condominiums and golf courses for the incoming rich. Sayles takes a complicated subject - how little control everyday people have over change in their lives - and treats it intelligently, opting not for flashy spectacle or cheesy sentiment, but well-crafted storytelling and solid drama which he infuses with a great deal of wry humour.
