'Little White Lie' Screened As Part Of Dinner & A Movie In Woods Hole

Enterprise Staff,, January 8, 2015

On January 17, the Woods Hole Film Festival and Quicks Hole Tavern present the next installation in the 2015 season of Dinner & a Movie, the winter film series of the Woods Hole Film Festival. The 10-part series takes place every other Saturday ending on May 9.

The January 17 screening will be of the award-winning documentary film, "Little White Lie," by Lacey Schwartz.

The Dinner & a Movie package combines farm-to-table sourced menu options at Quicks Hole Tavern with independent film curated by the Woods Hole Film Festival. For $27 per person, movie-lovers can select from a preset menu prepared specially for the evening. The price includes entrée and movie, but does not include beverage, dessert, tax or tip. A screening-only ticket is $15 and children under 12 are free.

Dinner seating in the pub at Quicks Hole Tavern, which is at 28 Railroad Avenue in Woods Hole, is at 5:45 PM. The screening follows at 7:30 PM at Redfield Auditorium, 57 Water Street in Woods Hole which is a short walk down the street.

The film tells Lacey Schwartz's story of growing up in a typical upper-middle class Jewish household in Woodstock, New York, with loving parents and a strong sense of her Jewish identity—despite the open questions from those around her about how a white girl could have such dark skin. She believes her family’s explanation that her looks were inherited from her dark-skinned Sicilian grandfather. But when her parents abruptly split, her gut starts to tell her something different.

At age of 18, she finally confronts her mother and learns the truth: her biological father was not the man who raised her, but a black man with whom her mother had had an affair. Afraid of losing her relationship with her parents, Lacey doesn't openly acknowledge her newly discovered black identity with her white family. When her biological father dies shortly before Lacey's 30th birthday, the family secret can stay hidden no longer. Following the funeral, Lacey begins a quest to reconcile the hidden pieces of her life and heal her relationship with the only father she's ever known.
