Classic Tennessee William's style-beautiful, over the top film
22 June 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I first saw "American Southern" in Cannes and was floored by how beautiful it was. (The cinematographer, Enrique Chediak, went on to win at Sundance and start his career from this film). It's in the classic Tennessee William's style; you expect Vivien Leigh or Elizabeth Taylor to come out any minute. One of the leads, Sister, wears a mink coat in the middle of a hot summer and drinks Jack Daniels all day long saying quotes like, "I don't do poor well", "Money is never gauche, only not having it is," and "I've lived so long with pain that I don't know how to live without it". People were quoting these after the film like Bette Davis' "Fasten your seat belts" comment in "All About Eve". The comic pair, Cola and Ducie are hilarious. It's also a period piece and all the details are perfect. Oscar nominee Terry Moore plays the matriarch. Its wordy, you can tell it was a play at Yale first. If you like the 40's melodramas that are a little bigger than life, you'll probably like this one. I think it might end up a small classic with time.
