"Local Color" tells the story of a troubled teenager, played by Trevor Morgan, who seeks artistic advice from a cantankerous but world-renowned oil painter, played by Mueller-Stahl. Through the course of their time together, the young man learns how to see the world through an artist's eyes and the master learns to view life from innocence again. Based on real characters and incidents in the life of writer/director George Gallo, the film resonates with a poignancy and authenticity rarely seen in movies today.
