Hollywood came back to Shelburne Falls for the second time in two years, in June of 2013. This time Warner Brothers Pictures transformed the village into Carlinville, Indiana, to film The Judge, starring Robert Downey Jr., Leighton Meester, Robert Duvall, Vincent D’Onofrio, Billy Bob Thornton and Vera Farmiga.
The movie tells the story of a successful lawyer who returns to his hometown for his mother's funeral only to discover that his estranged father, the town's judge, is suspected of murder.
