Interesting story
2 May 2003 | by (The Netherlands) – See all my reviews

As an Asian curious about the civil rights movement, I always take the opportunity to watch any movie based on that period of time. I can't judge the authenticity of the movie but it is well played, even if they are flaws. The story telling wasn't strong enough but Angela Bassett made up for it with her powerful acting. Stories of racial injustice always tear at my heart so it was refreshing to watch a movie about the segregated American South without the usual racial hate drama. There are subtle scenes of racial discrimination but it wasn't enough to make me want to bash some people up. The homosexuality subject was very thinly included in the sub plot and it was interesting to see how such a taboo subject was handled by the blacks in that era of time as even the whites had trouble with homosexuality. There wasn't even any intimate scenes between the two homosexual characters, just a little touch here and there. It was really cool to see the cars of that era - I much like them than the present ones; they had character. It was just a simple movie about a black woman trying to run her bar and maintain a marriage with a man who didn't love her anymore and keep her wilful daughter out of trouble.
