Storyline

Alabama, 1957. Pampered Souther belle Maggie DeLoach and her fellow sorority sisters Delia June, Keefi, and chapter president M.A., at Randolph College have lived the cosseted good life, free from worry and the strife that's starting to affect the rest of the Deep South during the Civil Rights movement. But when Maggie meets a liberal and dashing young photographer named Hoyt Cunningham who talks about the impending changes in the South, as well the radical talk from her outgoing classmate Aiken, Maggie knows her life will soon change too.

Couldn't get past the fake southern accents
9 September 2020 | by pridekilSee all my reviews

The fake accents were horrible and stereotypical. As a Southerner, I couldn't get past the first 10 minutes. If you want a movie on racial issues, there are much better ones out there.
