Nothing but Love!
13 August 1999 | by shmojoSee all my reviews

While I enjoyed Southern Heart immensely, I couldn't help but feeling there was something missing. Yes, there was the beautiful Alabama backdrop with every color of every leaf dripping onto the screen and yes, there were heartfelt, honest performances enough to make you want to follow these characters' stories well after the end of the movie, but there just was something nagging me.

I know it wasn't Tommy (Jamie Hendrix Collins) with her feisty soul that melts you when you look into her eyes. I'm pretty sure it wasn't Collin (Peter DeLuise) who commands the screen as he's torn between his heart and his family. Was it the fact that Christy (Emily Carpenter) was so sweet and charming as Tommy's best friend that I'm simply not thinking clearly? No, that's not it.

I would've liked more Bucky Pearl. That's it. Danny Gilroy's supporting work gave the film the lighthearted spark that brought a smile when needed. It wasn't contrived humor, like a funny face, or silly speaking voice that gave Bucky presence, it was the honesty of a guy who knows what he wants and only knows one way to get it.

Southern Heart is a testament that independent movies don't have to be edgy, dark, angst-filled trips into dismal depths of humanity. They just have to be good. This is a story worth telling by people who obviously loved telling it. Above all, it is a story worth seeing.
