Wonderful
2 May 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I found this film by accident, I loved it, I referred several of my friends to this and they love it. This film has become my wife's favorite film and she watches it at least once a week. I found this to be pretty realistic. We go down to the bayou country frequently. I'm a song writer and performer, and am always trying to bring more Cajun to my music. We just came back from 2 weeks in Lafayette. We went all through the bayou down there. Yes some of the accents are a little cheesy, but it's a movie. We loved the music. I would like to spend more time down there, but time doesn't always allow us to do everything we want to. I believe the writers director and cast did a wonderful job. The nay sayers on here, make me wonder what exactly they are looking for. It does have ethos of "Mice and Men", but jeez what is entirely original anymore. I don't think there is ANY indication of any overt attempt to copy that. It's just a heartfelt human story.
