Trivia

The old home occupied by Georgiana Carr is located at 206 N. Dillard Street in Durham. It was built about 1909 by a grocery wholesaler (as opposed to 1923 by tobacco magnate, as the movie states), has gone through several owners and configurations, and now is owned and used by the Durham Crisis Reponse Center, an agency that supports victims of domestic violence. The home is across Dillard Street from a television station, and the station's satellite dishes are seen in some shots in the film. See more »

Quotes

Harris Parker: This city like many in America, has come to a rough moment in its history. A city after all is just a collection of houses and buildings, hopes and dreams that depend on the fortune and determination and fate of its residents. The future, uncertain at best can be fearful or full of promise. It's all in how you see it..."

Good actors in a B movie - not much of a storyline
11 January 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I watched to the end, so it wasn't "that bad", as I saw the movie on a DVD at home and could have turned it off at any time. But that much said, it barely crossed my personal limit for "tolerable". The storyline is pretty dull and nothing can "fix" this. When you start with an uninteresting story, you get an uninteresting movie. I have no idea what Colin Firth was thinking to accept this part. I chose the movie because I figured he was a star and would surely only appear in a solidly good movie. I was wrong! Perhaps he thought it would be a challenge for him to play a character who is a Texan and felt this would give him a chance to break into being offered also roles for characters who are supposed to speak with American accents. He did quite well in terms of portraying a Texan, but that hardly compensated for a lack of an interesting plot.
