Soothing Their Conscience
23 October 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I really liked the visuals in this movie. It had nice muted, smoky colors. Too bad I didn't care that much for the story, or the woman (Cybil Shepherd) who co- wrote or it or the idiot (Ted Turner) who produced it.

This is the typical story in which the poor Southern blacks are all victims of white racists and every white person in the film - with the exception of "Reeny Perdew" (Shepherd, of course) - is a brutal bigot.

I was surprised that this made-for-TV film had three usages of Jesus' name in vain plus other blatant profanities, about everything but the f-word. Overall, the story was okay, nothing special; just another opportunity for southern Liberal writers (co-writers Shelby Foote, Larry McMurtrey, etc.) to soothe their guilty consciences.
