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>

Trivia

Joey Lauren Adams wrote the part of Lucy for herself, but gave the part to Ashley Judd when she decided she would be unable to direct the film and star in it. See more »

Goofs

The jukebox Lucy picks up sits in the back of the pick-up truck for most of the movie because she doesn't know what she is going to do with it. After her breakdown, she goes back to apologize to her father for her drunken outrage the night before and when she pulls up, the jukebox is missing from the back of her truck - it's easy to tell as the jukebox is higher than the cab of her pick-up. In the next scene, when she goes to visit Cal, the jukebox is back on her pick-up truck. See more »

Quotes

Lucy Fowler: It's like grapefruit, right? It's real nice and stuff and people love it, but when they're done, what's left over is pretty ugly.

Complex and intense but not depressing
12 October 2006 | by (Chicago, IL, USA) – See all my reviews

Saw this at the Chicago Film Festival and it was a great experience. The movie is a glimpse into the life and relationships of Lucy (Ashley Judd). I went in thinking it was going to be very intense and sad (especially after seeing some of the movie stills) and was very pleasantly surprised at the descriptive intense way the complex Lucy was portrayed and the light feel of the movie despite some very unhappy circumstances. I left the movie feeling like I got to know a good person and had some hope - but didn't see Hollywood clichés or forced happily ever afters.

The writer/director Joey Lauren Adams didn't take any shortcuts and quite happily didn't try to make a movie that appealed to everyone. This is a "real" southern town with "real" people. In the after movie question and answer session with Ms. Adams, she said it would be an interesting exercise to re-shoot the entire movie, keeping the dialog, with a man in the lead role. I keep going back to that…. I'd love to hear/see/read the different reactions of critics and audiences to the male and female versions of "Lucy".
