No movie shot in Maine received as many accolades as this 1999 gem, which won two Academy Awards: Michael Caine won for Best Supporting Actor, and John Irving won for Best Adapted Screenplay (which he adapted from his own book). The story centers on a young man (Tobey Maguire) in the 1940s, who leaves the Maine orphanage on which he was raised to see the world—which includes lobstering, orchard work, and falling in love. Several scenes were shot in Maine, including a major moment on Sand Beach in Acadia National Park—the state has never looked better on the big screen, and it’s at the PMA for two days only.
