NOT REAL
26 October 2001 | by (Pittsboro, NC) – See all my reviews

I saw this movie when it debuted on CBS right away. The acting was decent and the plot was standable. What really got me was the setting. It is (suppost to be) set in the REAL town of Silk Hope, NC. This town is not a big area and has a lot of farms. There is NO town mill, has depicted in the movie. On top of that, Farrah Fawcett has well as non of the other actors had a true central NC accent. I wish and will as a future filmmaker learn what these people didn't. RESEARCH, RESEARCH, RESEARCH!
