User Reviews

Pure Eudora Welty
24 March 2003 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

A beautiful film full of the richness and complexity of Southern life in the 1930s (?).The characters were beautifully portrayed and expressed the times, the concerns, desires, and needs of the Ponder family. Peter MacNichol was entirely believable as the beloved uncle whose only fault was his generosity. Angela Bettis clinched the innocent, pouting, yet headstrong Bonnie Dee. And JoBeth Williams did her best to hold the family together, while being cautiously aware of how life for the ponders seemed to be slipping away.

If you like the writing of Eudora Welty, you will love this film.
