Bell and Belle want to break out of their trailer park lives and get up and out to the "Big City" of Atlanta. Just when they think they are on their way to getting a nest egg Bell falls for a handsome police officer named Rhett Butler.
In the Georgia town of Johnson's Mark, where they take hunting seriously, Belle and Bell are best friends, housemates in a trailer. On the day Bell dumps her boyfriend and Belle quits her job, they decide to take their dreams to Atlanta. They'll need about $2500, so they set out to find the money. Belle has various schemes (bingo, karaoke), and Bell, who tends bar, offers to dance with the highest bidder. Then, she starts to fall in love with that guy, a local deputy sheriff named Rhett Butler. Love, friendship, loyalties, and the need for cash may be on a collision course. Written by
Great date movie, far, far better than nonsense like "Sex and the City". Dreams shattered, dreams realized, just great acting, with a nice slice of life feeling. If you could ever describe a movie as cute, "Southern Belles" would be that movie. The upbeat ending adds tremendously to what has already been a pleasant viewing experience. A lot of thought went into the script, the pacing, and everything comes off better than most low budget films. Congrats to all concerned. I can see why "Southern Belles" won so much praise on the "Festival circuit".Seek this one out, you will not be disappointed. Recommended viewing - MERK
