On Thursday, February 2, 2017, the film Little Pink House will premiere at the Santa Barbara International Film Festival. James wrote and recorded the song "Going Home (for Thanksgiving)," which is featured in the film. The soundtrack also features an original song from the one and only David Crosby.
The movie, directed by Courtney Balaker, tells the story of small-town nurse Susette Kelo who emerges as the reluctant leader of her working-class neighbors in their struggle to save their homes from political and corporate interests bent on seizing the land and handing it over to Pfizer Corporation. Susette's battle goes all the way to the US Supreme Court and the controversial 5-4 decision in Kelo vs. City of New London. The film stars Catherine Keener, Jeanne Tripplehorn, and Callum Keith Rennie.
