Storyline

In Texas in the late '60s, the Whit family meets for the funeral of grandfather Sparta. This, however, is no normal funeral, and the Whits are no normal family. Young L'il Sparta spies on the corpse and sees his grandmother involved in macabre and sinister rituals. His parents go and collect Aunt Miranda from the rest home where she has been locked away because of her part in a family scandal, while the tension between father and uncle over money matters is sky-high. In the stables, the camel belonging to the deceased has an attack of nerves, and after he's been calmed down, the child meets the grandfather's ghost who recounts all the family tales.

Noth, as Clinton, was the most endearing character.
11 August 2000 | by (Texas) – See all my reviews

I am a Texan. I loved this movie. I will buy it for home viewing. The story was an excellent "slice-of-life tale and genuinely made me homesick. While I enjoyed the performances of all the actors I was particularly drawn to Martin Sheen ( as I always am ) and I couldn't help but watch Christopher Noth in amazement.His range of emotions is amazing. We become attached to the truly honest performers...the ones who make us believe. He is one of those. I liked the relaxed style of this Texas movie and the funny moments. I'll never look at a camel in quite the same way again. Or my husband's ears.
