Beautifully done in a beautiful part of our world.
Everyone has their opinion, and mine on this particular film, is that it's one of the best to have ever graced the screen of my TV.
I'm from typical small town America, and to quite a degree,Gilead depicts this sort of life. Clannish, and less than trusting, when it comes to new folks, but what impressed me as much as anything was the unbelievable authenticity of Alison Elliotts southern accent. I had to look her up on the net to see if she was from the south, or not. She's not, but I am, and being familiar with my own accent, I can tell you she did it perfectly.
I've watched it about six, or seven times, and will likely watch it that many more before Let it rest for a while.
If you like beautiful scenery, small town life, and folks who are just a little short of being odd, you'll love this movie.
