This movie may have been a great story told; unfortunately it it is dramatically flawed. One cannot feel anything for the characters as their emotions and choices are somehow blurred in the sequence of scenes without transitions. In one scene the boys are talking, in the next some guy is driving a tractor in the grassy field. We must then do guesswork to realize that it's the dad of one of them that made them a race track. This is only one example of many.
The WWII war scenes are simply unbearable and bordering on the ridiculous. Just few of them, though, which helped.
The soundtrack starts promising since country and Southern music can be so rich with raw feelings and simple harmony; but the music fades away in the sequence of badly connected scenes. The film fails to grasp the atmosphere of the Great Depression and that of the South. To the extent it succeeds -- it is flat and only raises eyebrows.
The dialog is as flat as are the characters, the camera work and the editing. (The best part was that they did not use any profanity.) The movie did not deserve at all the 9 stars it had received in the beginning.
