Montgomery, Ala. (WSFA) -- A little taste of Hollywood is making its way to Alabama this week. 

The film Honeydrippers, which was shot on location in Butler County, premiered at Montgomery's Carmike Cinemas Wednesday night.

Several Alabamians, including young Nagee Clay, had speaking roles in the film.

The movie is set in the fictional city of Harmony, Alabama and goes about examining the complex issues of American sub-cultures in the 1950's south.

Veteran actor Danny Glover stars as Tyrone Purvis who owns a lounge for which the movie is named.

The outcome of the weekend is pivital in determining whether or not Purvis will be able to keep the Honeydripper open for business.

He begins to take a second look at Sonny Blake, a young man arrested by the corrupt local sheriff and forced to pick cotton with out pay, as his only hope.

Blake has nothing but a dream and a guitar, and Purvis' original idea of bringing in a famous guitarist for a one night show is dashed when the man doesn't arrive.

The movie is rated PG-13.
