RIDGEFIELD - The possibility of using Ridgefield as a location for a movie on the Newtown shooting isn't sitting well with the town's residents.
Residents say making the movie only 20 miles from Newtown is inappropriate a month and a half after the tragedy.
"It seems as if Ridgefield was chosen in part because it's close to Newtown, so there is a Newtown connection," Deborah Low said. "The timing is insensitive. Not here, not now, it's just too raw."
Director Jonathan Bucari, of Demian Pictures, says less than 5 percent of the movie would be filmed in Ridgefield if a permit is applied for. Bucari says the rest would take place in other communities in New England.
