An independent movie about real people - yes, there are still people out there with big hair. No murders, no special effects, just an affectionate look at people. I had read about the movie when it was shown at the Heartland Film Festival; I was not disappointed. A movie with a plot,character development and intelligence. Is it 'To Kill a Mockingbird'? No, but it is fun.
We actually made it to Grass Creek recently. Not an easy place to get to, but everyone that passed us gave us a friendly wave. Kindness to strangers is still alive in the US. Perhaps that's one reason this movie was made.
