Or at least it loves our hillsides, rivers, neighborhoods and architecture. Greater Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky have been cast in dozens of feature films over the years, including "Rain Man", "Traffic", "Airborne", "The Ides of March" and, "A Rage in Harlem." And another major motion picture, "Carol", is scheduled to start production here this spring.
