Did You Know?

Edit
Trivia Ron Eldard spent a lot of time playing sports with Jena Malone so they would both feel comfortable performing the scenes in which he is physically abusing her. He claimed that in no scene did inappropriate contact with Malone take place, and that for scenes in which he appears to grab her by the throat, he is actually only holding her by his fingertips. Eldard was adamant that the graphic depiction of sexual abuse and rape was a necessity for the film. See more »

Quotes Anney Boatwright: Hey, Bone. You sleepin'? You startin' to look like me, Bone. You're growin' up. What do you think, honey? You think I'm doin' the right thing?
Ruth Anne 'Bone' Boatwright: I don't know.
Anney Boatwright: I think I am. I hope I am! Sometimes I just get so tired, you know? Sometimes I just want somebody strong to stand by me. To stay with me.
Ruth Anne 'Bone' Boatwright: I'll stay with you.
Anney Boatwright: I know you will, Bone.
