When Eveline is shown from behind, "playing" the piano, she does not play far enough down on the piano to coordinate with the low notes we hear. See more »

Many of the posters who have made negative comments on this fantastic film are apparently some who were rightfully fired from the production. How unfortunate for them, because this was quite a movie.
I also understand that the budget of this film was around one million US dollars. That seems impossible, because of the lush and broad scope of the film, but those who told me that were sources within South Carolina government who had knowledge (who also told me of the employees, who were rightfully fired from the production, who've spoken ill of the film simply as an attempt at revenge). Apparently those fired were involved as well in the destruction a television show in the Charleston area.
A fantastic production in every way. A wonderful story and a touching tale of love's strength.
