Storyline

Alabama, 1957. Pampered Souther belle Maggie DeLoach and her fellow sorority sisters Delia June, Keefi, and chapter president M.A., at Randolph College have lived the cosseted good life, free from worry and the strife that's starting to affect the rest of the Deep South during the Civil Rights movement. But when Maggie meets a liberal and dashing young photographer named Hoyt Cunningham who talks about the impending changes in the South, as well the radical talk from her outgoing classmate Aiken, Maggie knows her life will soon change too.

Trivia

A gas station was coverted into a 1950s diner for the film. Shortly after, this location became the original McAllister's Deli, a restaurant chain currently with over 300 locations. See more »

Goofs

In the final scene with the national guard posted outside the administration building, the air conditioners which are placed prominently in two front windows are certainly not the type or size of air conditioners in 1957. See more »

why oh why oh why did they waste their time making this film....what a waste of time and money.
8 September 2000 | by (Wichita, KS) – See all my reviews

This is one of those movies you start watching because it has some interesting "celebrity" names...and it's an 80's film. It doesn't live up to that 80's film image. Don't get me wrong...if you like watching ignorant soldiers fight in pubs and little girls say it's ok to be raped...oh and let me not forget the infamous negro telling his "master" that he gets treated "oh so good", then you'd love this film. It was a waste of my time. I actually couldn't make myself watch the end. I watched enough to tell you...change the channel, don't waste your buck at the movie rental store, and if you went to a movie theater...then bless your hearts...you are brave.
