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.
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.
