The Fixer Film Shooting in Sonoma County

This summer Lily Whitsitt is producing Ian Olds' film The Fixer, starring Dominic Rains, Melissa Leo, James Franco, Rachel Brosnahan, and Thomas J. Ryan. The story follows a young Afghan journalist exiled from his war-torn country to a small bohemian community in Northern California. When he attempts to turn his menial job on the local police blotter into “Afghan-style” coverage of local crime, he gets drawn into the backwoods of this small town — a shadow Northern California where sex is casual, true friendship is hard to come by, and an unfamiliar form of violence bubbles up all around him.
