Storyline

The sins of the fathers. In a town near Little Rock, Lucy Fowler works hard for a construction firm; on weekends she drinks, goes home with someone, and come early morning, wakes and leaves as fast as she can. She cares a lot about her father, newly back in town, a painfully shy man who has nothing to say to her. She does go to a Holy Roller church with him about the same time that she starts, fitfully, a relationship with Cal Percell, new in town and a good guy. She kisses him sober, but still has demons to confront. What's the source of her careless ways; can she turn coal into a diamond? Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

A film which captures the heart and soul of a southern woman
27 January 2008 | by (united states) – See all my reviews

Ashley Judd gives an incredible performance as Lucy, a woman who is slowly and painfully trying to discover herself and make sense of her family and their world. She has much to overcome with an uncommunicative, alcoholic father and grandparents who have all endured abusive relationships. This film has such a beautiful and natural rhythm to it. The characters are real and the southern location and ease of life blends perfectly with the film's story and development. You care about these people as their lives unfold in everyday events. It is refreshing to have actors who give "authentic southern" performances. The accents and use of language are genuine . You can feel the southern breeze as Lucy and her roommate sit on the steps of their front porch waiting for something good to happen. The male lead Cal, played by Jeffrey Donovan is a perfect blend of male strength and sweet gentleness. Through his eyes we see Lucy fail and then ultimately succeed.
