Little Chenier's big in my heart
27 October 2007 | by (Louisiana) – See all my reviews

I was born and raised in Lafayette Louisiana and still am here and I was lucky enough to have viewed this amazing film at the Films on the Bayou Film Festival this past spring. The movie was very touching and funny and moving at times, and although, yes, some of the acting and accents were questionable, you could tell that Bethany put her heart and soul into this movie. It's one of the few movies out there that doesn't make fun of Cajuns, and it's very refreshing to see one, so props for that. The film pushed and pulled people in there seats. The crowd was very responsive, even after waiting the hour or more to view it since they had one role of film for the 5 packed theaters that were showing it simultaneously. If you get a chance to see it, please take the time, it's worth it.
