It did Huntsville, Alabama justice. While not the greatest movie ever made, Constellation does a decent job of showing the south without stereotyping it. Billy Dee Williams has trouble coming to terms with the fact his sister threw her life away for someone she thought loved her.
While tense at some points, dramatic at others, I liked this movie because of the location. The story took some time to get into. I've watched it twice now and have taken a liking to it.
The acting isn't that good, the dialogue isn't capturing, and the subplots needed a little more work. The movie is still pretty good. It certainly isn't a groundbreaking film piece sure to change the world, but it's a decent "B" movie.
