Description
This is a parable for our times: a take on small town America that is hilarious, moving, and utterly originalEden, USA, is the perfect place to live until Ed Harris, the banker, finds his wife in bed with his best friend. Shotgun in hand, he escorts them to the door, and tells his friend: "Guess what? She's yours!""I've got a wife, Ed," says the friend."Now you have two..."Suddenly, Eden is turned upside down: love blossoms between the town drunk and his teetotaling neighbor, the Barrow Boys make parole, and the teenagers give the snooping sheriff's deputy more than a whiff of birdshot.The Garden of Eden is about loyalty, sticking with those you love, tolerance and forgiveness--and the simple solutions ordinary people find to keep small communities strong.
