Storyline

Four friends get in a car to go mountain biking and when they stop to get some gas they come across an interesting man with a story about a prisoner and a pregnant woman. In this classic, you will feel as if you traveled back to a simpler time where Louisiana was still a wasteland of swamps and love waits in the air like the Spanish moss on the bayou.

Interesting, episodic, meandering; good acting
28 August 2000 | by Sleepy-17See all my reviews

This story of a convict and a pregnant woman adrift in a small boat during a Mississippi flood. is well-handled. I haven't read the story by William Faulkner for years so I can't remember how closely it is followed. Good performances by Arliss Howard and Jeanne Tripplehorn.
