Conflict of conscience
9 August 1999 | by (florida) – See all my reviews

Tommy Lee Jones plays Snopes with real attitude- pride mixed with evil. Shawn Whittington is excellent as the son who is conflicted- he no longer wants to be his father's accomplice in the acts of revenge. He wants to stick with his blood but he knows that the way his father handles the problems is wrong. The women in the movie stay in the background. This is a good adaptation of the Faulkner story.
