exceptional movie
14 October 2008 | by See all my reviews

let me introduce myself I am the niece of Jane Stafford who was my aunt and Billy Stafford was my uncle. My father Merle Stafford was his brother. This was a very turbulent time in our lives growing up and I must say this movie has brought back many memories of growing up.It is not something I talk a lot about. We did not spend a lot of time with this part of my family as you can see why. However my sister and myself were named after Jane and she was a very loving mother and lived a life of fear.I can tell you alcohol was a very aggressive factor in our lives and affected the lives of all concerned.When a individual lives in a life of fear and violence and endures the suffering inflicted on them daily how much do you think you could endure? I'm not saying she was right in shooting my uncle but I don't believe she committed suicide either.Sometimes a silent cry for help goes unheard.......
