Storyline

E.F. Bloodworth has returned to his home - a forgotten corner of Tennessee - after forty years of roaming. The wife he walked out on has withered and faded, his three sons are grown and angry. Warren is a womanizing alcoholic, Boyd is driven by jealousy to hunt down his wife and her lover, and Brady puts hexes on his enemies from his mamma's porch. Only Fleming, the old man's grandson, treats him with the respect his age commands, and sees past all the hatred to realize the way it can poison a man's soul. It is ultimately the love of Raven Lee, a sloe-eyed beauty from another town, that gives Fleming the courage to reject this family curse. Written by Anonymous

An almost perfect movie about people & families down south
21 June 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Wow, this movie is so good. Wonderful characters, wonderful storyline, wonderful songs and music, beautiful countryside. Weird but also very normal people down in the South. There are very nice and kind people, but also got lot of mean people, white trash. The guy who left the family 40 years ago, now wanted to come back to his old home again to die. There are so many deep nostalgic emotions, melancholic memories, hard and hurt feelings floating around in this bitter sweet movie. The struggling, lonely, frustrate growing pain of that wonderful innocent young man, that girl he fell in love with, "I got a gal, sweet as she can be, Raven is her name..." , a short but sweet song. Everybody in this movie performed so well and so natural. Just wish more people could enjoy this movie.
