Mama Flora reflects on her life while trying to help her grand-daughter get her life right and be a better mother for her son. All while bringing the family she has left back together. Movies takes place from the 1910s to the 1970s.
I gave this movie a '10' primarily because of the acting skills and filmography. Being a Southerner, at times some movies about the South are a little hard to swallow. I found this movie very interesting as it gave insight not only into situation but the feelings and thoughts of the characters. I especially enjoyed seeing Mr. Ed Grady in the roll of Robert E. Lee. It sometimes amazes me that he is so versatile and yet has not shown up in more movies. I believe we should have more movies in which the actors are so well suited to their parts, rather than just using some of the more established names in the movie industry as 'draws', whether they have the ability to 'become' the character they are portraying or not.
