Storyline

A death in Oklahoma sets in motion events leading to something great: so says a Muscogee-speaking narrator when Cufe Smallhill, a registered Seminole who's part Creek, discovers his father's body one morning. Per dad's wishes, Cufe sinks the body in a pond. After a closed-casket funeral - Cufe's cousin loads a donated coffin with weights and a watermelon - Cufe goes to Tulsa to spend time with his sister, Miri. He meets Miri's neighbor, Francie. They talk and listen, and things seem to open up for Cufe. Miri has her problems, though, including an estrangement from her mother, Cora. Miri drinks too much, sleeps around, and steals from her boss. How can anything great come of this? Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Little Big Movie
11 September 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Yes, it's an indie. Yes, it's low budget. Yes, it's a good movie. This is Sterlin Harjo's first feature length film, but you're going to hear his name in the future. Anyone who can do what he's done with this movie on a shoestring budget, filming at grandma's house, is very talented. It's an endearing tale portrayed by actors you've not heard about...some who show flashes of brilliance. If you're looking for a break from CGI laden big budget bang films, give this one a chance. You'll be pleasantly surprised by the story, the setting, the acting, and the dynamite soundtrack. I'm told it will be out on DVD sometime this winter, '07.
