This was a heartfelt movie. Especially since I live in Henrietta Texas. I have lived here for about 6 years now and enjoy this small little town. People in this town are so sweet and hard working. So this movie caught my heart a little more being that I live here. We have very old buildings, houses, churches and a lot of history. We have an annual Pioneer Reunion every September, I believe going on 78 years now. Our old jail museum is a sight and it has a lot of history as well. Our courthouse is absolutely beautiful. If anyone ever gets a chance come see our little town. A lot of people will come here and say there isn't much to do here but if you get the right person they can show you so much history. I believe our school system uses this movie for a homework project as well. There were a lot of great actors in this movie that nailed the personalities around here.
