This film was a good portrayal of the real Newton boys...i am a Newton from Texas, and unfortunatly connected to this Newton clan...the true story in brief is that they were "kicked out" of the family for some kind of wrong doing by their parents...no other Newtons were farmers...mainly insurance salesmen, that kind of thing...Matt DEFINITLY looks like a Newton in this film...he looks almost identical to my great uncle John Newton when he was in his mid-20s...i was suprised by the acurracy of the film...
