Credits at the beginning of the film use full names for the following people: Audrey Marie Anderson, Marcus Lyle Brown, Bradley Harrison Picklesimer. This differs from the closing credits, which use Audrey Anderson, Marcus Brown, and Bradley Picklesimer. Bradley Picklesimer is mis-credited in both the opening and closing credits and her last name should read Picklesheimer. See more »

Gritty Crime Drama about Tolerance and Forgiveness
Patricia Arquette and Billy Bob Thorton are at their best in this gritty, quasi-noir crime drama set in Louisiana. Thorton's character is similiar to the one that he played in Monster's Ball. This role however was more sympathetic but not as complex. Arquette is good at playing characters that live on the edge but still manage to be morally strong and honest. She also has an extremely potent sex appeal that is simultaneously mature and girlish. The story is a coplex one with lots of twists and turns. There are secrets in the small town of LaSalle Parrish and they are artfully revealed by the director whose style is a little clunky but engaging nonetheless. I recommend this movie. It's message of tolerance is very important and could not have been more clearly stated.
