"Sunny Side Up" shoots in Scituate
By Nancy White
Wicked Local Scituate

Scituate — Hollywood has come to Scituate.
Starting Monday, Oct. 4, a film crew for an independent movie set up shop on the South Shore. Filming began at the Red Lion Inn in Cohasset, but on Tuesday film crews were at the Egypt Country Store in Scituate, and both Fitts Mill and Bullman Marine will be set locations as well.
The movie is called “Sunny Side Up” and stars a local actress and producer Christy Scott Cashman (she also wrote the screenplay) and Parker Posey, who starred in “Best in Show,” among other movies.
The crew was scheduled to be in and around Cohasset most of the week, shooting scenes in Cohasset Village and JJ’s Dairy Hut on Route 3A. Over the next three weeks, the movie will be filmed in various locations in Cohasset, Hingham and Scituate. The bulk of the movie will be shot at the Weir River Farm in Hingham.
The movie follows Millie Bartlett (Cashman), who is struggling to keep the chicken farm that has been in her family for generations afloat. A chance meeting (shot at the Red Lion Inn) brings her together with Angelica Feelgoode (Posey), an energy and fitness guru to the stars. To help support her farm, Millie agrees to film a reality show with her new friend.
Scituate and the South Shore were chosen because “it’s got the look,” said Ryan Cook, assistant location manager for the film. He was charged by the film’s producers to find the spaces and locations that fit the feel and look desired for the film. The film is meant to take place in a small coastal town in Maine.
“(They) have a quaint feel to it. A fishing town feel and that’s what we were looking for,” Cook said.
Around noontime on Monday, evidence of a movie production could be found in scaffolding about 20 feet high with a camera setup on top. A scene was being shot where two of the movie’s characters were walking across the breezeway between the main Red Lion Inn building and the barn. The movement was being shot from multiple angles. A trailer truck was parked in Cohasset Village with all sorts of moviemaking equipment, and various members of the production crew could be seen around the Red Lion Inn.
“It’s basically a construction site that moves every day — and we have to feed everyone, find parking and interface with local police, fire departments and businesses,” Cook said of the on-location production. He had been at the Red Lion since 3a.m. on Monday.
Passersby in Cohasset showed some interest in the moviemaking on Monday. Cook said people were “all smiles” as they came to see what was going on at the Red Lion. He said the top three questions he gets asked are “What’s going on here?” “Who’s starring in the movie?” and “Can I be an extra.?”
At the Red Lion, the barn was being turned into a yoga studio for a scene and other scenes were being shot in The Cave (the inn’s basement bar), the saloon, the inn’s lobby and one of the hotel’s rooms.
Making a movie is slow going; on average a day of filming yields about a minute of film. This being a smaller-scale film, it may be a faster production schedule with an output of three or four minutes a day, Cook said.
Cook said he has received support from the community in the planning for the movie.
“We couldn’t have made this film without the support of the towns and the generosity of various vendors,” Cook said.
