Opening in Theaters January 30, 2009, New in Town stars Renee Zellweger and Harry Connick Jr. The film, set none other than in New Ulm, sadly filmed elsewhere, has high powered consultant Lucy Hill landing in this small Minnesota town armed to close the plant. After her frosty reception she warms to the community, finds herself accepted and rescues job security for all. Hope this remains a romantic comedy and not any dismal forcast. Oh and those accents?! The Director, Jonas Elmer, great guy, did visit New Ulm, even sending a dialect coach. Still sounds like Fargo.
