Goofs

When the TV is delivered, it comes on without warming up. It also was able to pick up a station without any type of external antenna attached. There were only a handful of TV stations in Louisiana in the 50's and none would have come in so clear out on a rural farm. See more »

Quotes

Magnolia: Your people aren't fussy folk, are they?
Tiger Ann Parker: No, mam.
Magnolia: Good, 'cause I can't stand no fussy eaters. I make one dinner for everyone, and that's it.
Tiger Ann Parker: Well, we eat just about anything but snails. I read in a book once they eat snails in Paris, France.
Magnolia: I ain't got no snail recipes.

Kelsey Keel makes this movie
27 June 2002 | by Casey-52See all my reviews

I might be completely biased because Kelsey Keel is a local girl from my neck of the woods who went to high school across the street from me, but she is superb in this film. After winning two Awards for her work in this film (a Daytime Emmy and a Young Artist Award), I hope she continues to find work in films and ages with grace and maturity on-screen. Juliette Lewis and Shirley Knight provide able support, but the fact that the entire film is shown from Tiger Ann's point of view only provides Keel with some magnificent characterization and plenty of screentime that should have earned her star billing. Magnificent coming of age story that should be seen by audience members of all ages that suffers from being shown on ShowTime and seeing a less than adequate home video release.
