Fun one time movie
15 January 2015 | by (Hungary) – See all my reviews

A portrait of the life in a small southern town in the USA, Good Intentions is a fun movie, that offers a deep variety of emotions.

As the title suggest our main character Etta just want the best for her family, but ends up failing to do so because she wants to have everything and everybody around her under her control. In the end she learns a valuable lesson about trusting others and giving them the respect and honesty they deserve.

You are probably not going to watch this movie more than once, but the humor, the characters and the atmosphere of the small town will probably be enough for you to make the movie a great experience if only for 84 minutes, it certainly has been for me at least.
