REGINA TAYLOR IS THE FINEST ACTRESS I HAVE EVER HAD THE PLEASURE TO SEEING ON THE SCREEN.
11 December 2000 | by eliz7212See all my reviews

I have just finished watching Cora Unashamed. I wish I had not waited to see it. I enjoyed it immensely. The best thing about it is the performances of Regina Taylor and Cherry Jones. I have never been so riveted to a screen in all my life and I have viewed a lot of movies. The tension between the two characters was so apparent and the weakness of the father in the family was absolutely disturbing. I commend all the actors in this fine film but most notably, Regina Taylor and Cherry Jones. I look forward to enjoying their future performances.
