Ruby Montgomery: What if I had your brother's name tattooed by my deal, a sex reminder every time you went to fool with me? That's how I live every day of my life, rain or shine.
Claude Montgomery: A rose is just a symbol that represents a flower called a rose. And you oughta be damned proud that I covered her name up with a feather that way, 'cause I done it for you. Out of love.

Better than a 5.0
20 April 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

It looks like the lack of marketing for this film has really caused the filmgoing public to be deprived. I understand there was some turmoil surrounding the films release, which is why it was so delayed, and had things worked out better, it may have reached the audience it was designed for. The endearing part of this movie, with it's wandering plot, and it's archetypal characters, is that it is an accurate reflection of daily life among many of the lower middle class that lives in the middle of this country. I know these characters. Every one of them could be a neighbor to me. Although this film was based in Arkansas, it easily could have been made in Clay City, KY, right down to the phrase "daddy and them's" to refer to the patriarchal home-place. In short, this movie is about life, and not everyone's life, but hopefully about the life of someone everyone knows. When you add in the stellar cast, including hillbilly hero John Prine, this movie can simply not go unwatched.
