Storyline

Successful Carolinian George Johnsten meets Chicago art gallery owner Madeleine at an electoral benefit art auction- love at first sight. Madeleine decides to meet a Southern original artist, so George seizes the opportunity to come along and present her to his North Carolina parents Eugene and Peg, drop-out brother Johny and his high-pregnant wife Ashley. Confronting the outsider soon opens a can of worms as emotions revive or emerge, like admiration and jealousy. Written by KGF Vissers

Wonderful, beautiful, funny, touching
28 April 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

What a wonderful, beautiful, funny and touching movie! Being FROM North Carolina, I found this movie to be a sincere and poetic depiction of deep South culture. Many who view this movie will walk away with differing and varying views of the underlying story. Yet at its core Junebug is a simple look at two different cultures, how they collide and then after a period of understanding and self-realization, there is so much to learn about each other, (and their significant others)! I highly recommend this movie to all who have the opportunity to see it! As an aside, the writing and casting was perfect matched, but it all came together with the skillful direction of Mr. Morrison...shall I say Oscar? I for one can not wait for his next film.
