Reading the back of the DVD case of HIGH LONESOME as it's known in Britain I knew how everything was going to work out in the end , but I didn't realise how unlikely it was all going to be . Walter Osgood is the only black man in the county ! I do know there was a lot of racism in the deep south , but the only black man in the county seems highly unlikely . Yeah I know the Deep South was highly racist at this time but to have only one single black man remaining in a whole county does seem highly unlikely indeed and I didn't care at all for all the tedious mawkishness but I guess that's only to be expected from this type of story featuring a young boy
I don't want to be totally negative because it is fairly well acted especially by William Fichtner as The Sheriff ( Though again another unlikely arc from his character ) but it's a shame seeing Louis Gosset Jr appearing in such forgettable films as this when he was the most critically acclaimed black actor of the 1980s . I doubt if he'll be getting any more great roles as he did with AN OFFICER AND A GENTLEMAN and THE GUARDIAN
