Overlooked Art House Classic, must see to believe!
24 May 2000 | by (California) – See all my reviews

Swamp Girl is one of those rare cinematic masterpieces that dares to explore and plunge into the toxic spirit that lies deep within disturbed and corrupt souls who try in vain to lay claim to the fruits of an Eden-like swampland in Georgia. Simone Griffeth brilliantly pulls off a complex character study, bridging the gap between an innocent doe-like teen free from the binds of society, yet possessing a believable drive to "deliver the goods" when outside pressure invades her turf. If you are an NRA member, you might be turned off by Simone's anti-firearm declaration (taunting a foe who is powerless without their gun,etc.), but open your mind, and the payoff is worth it! So open up and find a copy of Swamp Girl!
