Movie Info

Alan Alda wrote, directed, and starred in this satirical film about the corruption of the film industry's approach to history. Alda plays Michael Burgess, a college professor who has written a historical novel about the American Revolution. The book has been turned into a script, and a Hollywood film crew descends on his North Carolina hometown to make the movie. Predictably, the director and actors make a mess of his concept, and Burgess becomes frustrated as the town is turned upside down.

A sweet, funny comedy about the perils of being a writer and making a movie. An underrated charmer.

Audience Reviews for Sweet Liberty

what a cute movie with a young Michelle Pfeiffer, Michael Caine, Alan Alda, and Lillian Gish.

This movie was written, directed and starring Alan Alda whom did a good job. Alda is a writer who's book is being turned into a movie with Caine and Pfeiffer. This movie shows what a Hollywood crew can do to a little town while filming...it is too crazy.
