Trivia

The movie's title is a reference to the song 'Mississippi Goddam', which was written and most famously recorded by Nina Simone. Simone wrote the song in 1963 as a protest against the racial injustices that inspired the civil rights movement, especially the assassination of Medgar Evers in Jackson, Mississippi, on June 12, 1963, and the Klan-set bomb that blew up the 16th Street Baptist Church and killed four little girls in Birmingham, Alabama, on September 15, 1963. Simone famously performed the song in front of tens of thousands of people at the third Civil Rights march from Selma to Montgomery, Alabama, in 1965. The chorus of the song is, "Alabama's got me so upset; Tennessee's made me lose my rest; and everybody knows about Mississippi goddamn!" See more »

Don't Damn Mississippi-Blame the Film **1/2
14 July 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The film goes through every possible social ill known to mankind.

This is an urban problem affecting minorities; it is not just confined to Mississippi.

It is basically the idea of a young girl, Kerry,trying her best to get out of this cycle which has beset the family.

We see alcoholism, gambling verbal and physical abuse, breast cancer, and men constantly cheating on women in the film. There is lesbianism as well, nothing is really missed here.

Everyone starts dying off as Kerry gets the opportunity to get out. Is the writer trying to say that if you can't rid yourself of this vicious cycle, you just die?
