A coming of age drama set in the deep south.
1 June 2001 | by michaelRokeefeSee all my reviews

Adam Arkin directs this thought provoking drama set in rural Louisiana in the early 1950's. So much can happen to a young girl in just one summer. A 12 year old girl(Kelsey Keel) has been forced to come to grips with the fact her parents are developmentally disabled. The family is held together by the girl's grandmother(Shirley Knight). Rich Aunt Dorie(Juliette Lewis)comes home to try and ease the family's woes.

Tender and quite touching. Well worth watching.
