Interesting, episodic, meandering; good acting
28 August 2000 | by (Colorado) – See all my reviews

This story of a convict and a pregnant woman adrift in a small boat during a Mississippi flood. is well-handled. I haven't read the story by William Faulkner for years so I can't remember how closely it is followed. Good performances by Arliss Howard and Jeanne Tripplehorn.
