A sold-out crowd packed the Penn Theatre on Friday for the premiere of Love and Honor, a Vietnam-era romance written by Plymouth Township-based scribe Jim Burnstein and inspired by Plymouth Mayor Pro Tem Mike Wright's experience going AWOL. Lines of moviegoers wrapped around the corner of Penniman Avenue and Main Street on Friday for the sold-out screening, which benefited the nonprofit historic theater. The film—which was Michigan-written, directed and filmed—made its video on demand premiere on Feb. 14. Friday marked the film's theatrical release in select cities around the world. For those unable to secure a ticket to the Plymouth premiere, Love and Honor will have its opening weekend at Emagine Novi beginning March 29. Were you at the…

Film, which premieres Friday at the Penn Theatre, stars Liam Hemsworth as character based on Plymouth Mayor Pro Tem Mike Wright.
Plymouth Mayor Pro Tem Mike Wright has a word of caution for anyone who is an acquaintance of his friend Jim Burnstein, a screenwriter from Plymouth Township whose credits include Renaissance Man and D3: The Mighty Ducks. "Be careful what you tell him, because you have no idea where it's going to end up," Wright said. For Wright, a story he told Burnstein of going AWOL while serving in Vietnam sparked Burnstein's next movie idea: A story about two soldiers who flee to Michigan in the midst of the Vietnam War. Love and Honor, the byproduct of Wright's story, premieres theatrically following a 7:15 p.m. engagement Friday at a sold-out Penn Theatre. The film premiered in February on video on demand services nationwide and will open …
