'Sunshine State'

The film Sunshine State is the latest work from veteran filmmaker John Sayles. It's the story of a seaside resort town undergoing gentrification. Lincoln Beach is a fictional place. But Sayles drew inspiration from a real Florida beach for the story. Sayles talks with Liane Hansen about the film, its exploration of the things that divide people and the underlying motivations for what they say.
