Has anyone seen "Columbus"? It's a new film not only set in Columbus, Indiana, but featuring many of the iconic architectural sites woven into the storyline. Sounds a bit contrived, but could be interesting.

I haven't seen it, but here's a trailer. Shown are Saarinen's Miller house with the conversation pit complete with Alexander Girard furnishings, the Cleo Rogers Library by I. M.Pei, and the Eliel Saarinen First Christian Church.

Columbus is a gem of a place. It's sad that there is no Wright building there. In the 30s, Wright was considered for the First Christian Church, but the commission went to Eliel Saarinen instead.
