I recently viewed this film for the second time, having seen it perhaps twenty years ago. I found out why I remembered it fondly. A fairly true-to-life depiction of a back-hills country town and it's people. The characters are strong and played superbly by the great cast. The cinematography is wonderfully nostalgic. It makes you feel as if you are there, living the story. I remembered numerous details from this movie which made me realize how closely I paid attention the first time around. I've seen dozens of movies in the last year and can't remember half as much about them. Modern movies offer great things with special effects and bigger than life color and sound. Movies like this one are timeless classics without any of the production bells and whistles. Just a good if not great, honest movie.
