Trivia

When the producers needed a vintage automobile for the film, they scouted in the shooting area and found Otis Mason in Westminster, South Carolina, who had restored a 1912 Overland to running condition that he had recovered from a barn. His vehicle was hired, and as no one else knew how to operate it, he appeared in the movie as the driver, with one line, "Yes, Ma'am." See more »

I really loved the plot and acting of this movie.
23 March 2008 | by (United States - Georgia) – See all my reviews

I believe that everyone involved with the story itself, screenwriter, director, production as well as the actors' portrayal was very good. It showed an accurate glimpse back to a much simpler place and time in rural Southern customs and attitudes concerning the human plight, as well as the controversy that always surrounds religion even in a small community in the mountains of North Georgia.

My family's roots were started there and many who have passed on lie underneath the red clay, where I too one day shall lay this body down. They don't have writers or actors today who could do this film. 20th Century Fox did well in backing this story. Don't know if it made them money at the box office, though it made a lasting impression of a precious moment in our past when life was lived at a much slower pace. A neighbor was a person you knew. Ahhh, to love thy neighbor as thyself.......what a radical idea !!!!!!! ENJOY !!!
