Finally! On Sunday, we will get to see the film adaptation of “Little Pink House,” Jeff Benedict’s book about the fight against eminent domain in New London’s Fort Trumbull neighborhood.

It will be treated to its movie-theater debut at the Garde Arts Center before moving onto a limited national release in Los Angeles, New York, San Francisco and Atlanta.

“Little Pink House” stars Catherine Keener (“Get Out,” Oscar-nominated for "Being John Malkovich" and "Capote") as Susette Kelo, the Fort Trumbull homeowner who fought eminent domain all the way to the U.S. Supreme Court. Jeanne Tripplehorn ("Big Love," "The Firm") co-stars.

“Little Pink House” was shot in late 2015 in Vancouver, although a crew captured some exterior shots in New London.

Courtney Balaker directed “Little Pink House” and wrote the script from Benedict’s book. It features a new song written for the film by David Crosby of Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young.

Members of the creative team will attend the screening in New London. Benedict will sign his books, too, including his latest, the biography “Tiger Woods.”

“Little Pink House,” 5 p.m. Sunday, Garde Arts Center, 325 State St., New London; $20, $25; (860) 444-7373, gardearts.org.
