Escanaba in da Moonlight
For nearly three quarters of a century, Soady men have trekked to their little "home away from home" north of Escanaba-the heart and soul of the U.P.-to drink, cause a little bit of trouble, and bag bucks. It's the day before the opening of deer season and at 35, Reuben Soady is in danger of becoming the oldest member in the history of the family never to bag a buck. Known around town as the "Buckless Yooper," Reuben goes to any and all lengths to erase himself from the luckless pages of the family record book. Written by Michigan native Jeff Daniels, this super-yooper laugh fest is a hunting story to beat all hunting stories. If you're looking for a hysterically funny glimpse into a traditional male rite of passage, all roads lead to the Soady deer camp.
