24 April 2004 | by (Ammon, Idaho) – See all my reviews

I found this to be to my enthusiasm pretty gritty and disturbing from the first 20 minutes or so, with familiar racist slang, and the Ku Klux Klan beating the black man, Walter (Lou Gossit Jr.) who really shows no violence or racism, but faces it from the citizens of High Lonesome. Joseph Mazzello, as Charlie is a bold, Huck Finn-like lad, who needs to fend for himself and take care of his little sister, even when she's sick, and hunts with his rifle, and showing attitude firing it at Walter's farm. Patrick Swayze's brother (Don Swayze) plays Charlie's brutal drunk father bearing resemblance to Papa Finn. Mazzello's only role where his hair appears short. Joe just naturally exhibits, to this day, his supernatural emotions.
