Sixteen
2 January 2008 | by jessica-guessSee all my reviews

Well, I have never seen this movie, but I know something about it as well. It was filmed on my family's property in South Georgia. My cousin was held by the lady that played the mother in the movie. My mom told me my great grandparents were not happy when they heard that there were nude scenes being shot in the creek and it was between a "brother and sister." The creek and pond or whatever was/is our land. My aunt bought this movie to see if you could see my grandfather's mill house, but I don't think she was successful. It is really neat that my family was part of this movie, but it is sad that the movie was so bad and so trashy. My family is nothing like the family depicted in the movie and it really upset them that the movie portrayed people from the South in that manner. I just wanted to add my two cents in.
