After watching this documentary, I found myself wanting to visit Savannah, Georgia probably like many others. Characters like Lady Chablis who was born Frank but has become a woman in ever possible way but not the reproductive way was quite an amazing transformation. Then there is the wonderful Emma Kelly nicknamed the Lady of Six Thousand Songs by Johnny Mercer, a fellow Savannah legend. Of course, the documentary actually shows us the city, the tour bus that refers to references in the book by the author, John Berendt, also shown here about his love and fascination for this garden mecca. Makes you want to go and visit to see for yourself but then you feel like an outsider because you are in their world. Savannah is as close-knit and tight and hospitable to tourists, visitors, and newcomers but don't start telling them how to change their city or their ways, they'll politely nod and walk away shaking their heads.
