Storyline

Gal Young 'Un centers on a spinster woman who lives alone in the woods of north Florida until she is swept off her feet by an opportunistic bootlegger. He marries her for her place and her daddy's money and her cooking and cleaning, which she freely shares. Inevitably, he shows his true colors in a variety of ways. One day he brings home a very young woman with clear intentions of keeping her as a mistress (a gal young 'un) in the older woman's house. Business takes him elsewhere and the two woman are left alone in the woods together to come to terms with their shared exploitedness. Written by George W. Sherouse

Worth looking for
3 April 1999 | by (Tallahassee, Florida) – See all my reviews

This movie was shown at a small film festival in Tallahassee (home of Victor Nunez) a year or two ago. It won't be easy to find but it's worth it. The gorgeous North Florida backwoods settings faithfully evoke the look of the 20s, when the story is set. The original story, by Marjorie Rawlings, is just unpredictable enough to be a lot of fun. The production quality is adequate -- I found the sound design occasionally jarring -- but is better than a lot of recent 'independent' films....
