A drama set in the 1920s, where free-spirited Janie Crawford's search for happiness leads her through several different marriages, challenging the morals of her small town. Based on the novel by Zora Neale Hurston.
All the couples are back for a wedding in Las Vegas, but plans for a romantic weekend go awry when their various misadventures get them into some compromising situations that threaten to derail the big event.
I ended up getting this because I read the synopsis on line and thought how interesting. But then... I got home and watched it -- it was so deliberately slow paced. It kept jumping around and making no sense. I'm sure they were trying to represent how droll monotonous real life can be, but if I wanted real life, I got one and wouldn't need TV or movies! I mean, it was beautifully filmed. The acting was okay. But I didn't care for any of the people. Way too boring to follow. It just went on and on and on and on. I was more interested in the goings on at the psychiatric hospital and what the lead went through there, than after he got out. By the end, I felt mad and disappointed that I wasted my time and money on this piece of you-know-what. Don't waste your time either.
