Did You Know Jeff Daniels Starred In A Movie About Michigan Hunters?
Am I the only person in Michigan that DIDN'T KNOW Jeff Daniels wrote and starred in a movie about a deer camp in Escanaba, Michigan?
I was scrolling on Facebook after work the other day when I saw a post from Visit Escanaba talking about the hunting season approaching and how it was time to watch the cult classic movie Escanaba In Da Moonlight.
What's The Plot For Escanaba In Da Moonlight?
IMDb says Escanaba In Da Moonlight is about "a macho man" named Rueben Soady (played by actor Jeff Daniels) "in a family on the eve of deer-hunting season must deal with the eldest son's curse of never having bagged a buck." Visit Escanaba said, Escanaba in da Moonlight captures the humor and sarcasm of what it means to be “a Yooper”.
