61

85 minutes – Drama
Release date: May 21, 2010
Canadian distributor: E1 Entertainment Canada

It is the end of the 1960s. It is the end of an era. The United States is poised at the threshold of a turbulent time in modern history. President Nixon has captured the White House and the U.S. war in Vietnam continues with all of its televised carnage. Perry, a sheltered chemist, falls in love with Leslie, a former homecoming princess, when he is selected to be a jury member at her hippie death cult murder trial. Perry has always done what is expected of him. He was a straight-A student who got a good job at a chemical company and proposed to his virgin Christian girlfriend, Dorothy. Leslie took a different path after she was traumatized by the Kennedy assassinations, her abortion and the divorce of her parents. Her answer was LSD. She joined a hippie death cult and helped murder a God-fearing citizen in her own home. When Perry and Leslie lock eyes across the court at Leslie`s murder trial, Perry is forced to confront the darkest deepest parts of himself and by extension, society.
