An author who returns to his hometown to deliver a commencement address to a class of graduating high school students has to deal with his feelings for an old flame as well as the advances of a student who has the hots for him.
E.F. Bloodworth has returned to his home - a forgotten corner of Tennessee - after forty years of roaming. The wife he walked out on has withered and faded, his three sons are grown and angry. Warren is a womanizing alcoholic, Boyd is driven by jealousy to hunt down his wife and her lover, and Brady puts hexes on his enemies from his mamma's porch. Only Fleming, the old man's grandson, treats him with the respect his age commands, and sees past all the hatred to realize the way it can poison a man's soul. It is ultimately the love of Raven Lee, a sloe-eyed beauty from another town, that gives Fleming the courage to reject this family curse.Written by
Ivanhoe is my home town and I grew up in that farm house. Fun fact: I hunt out the bedroom window and I killed my first deer out of it. I will always live in Ivanhoe and still do a hog killing every year. It is awesome that people have filmed a movie in Ivanhoe. My papa currently owns the land that the farmhouse is on because it has been passed down through the generations. Ivanhoe is mostly family and my Uncle owns Ivanhoe Blueberries. In the woods in the back of the field my papa has a lot of junk trucks and a saw mill. I still plant corn and beans in the field and I had to remove my chair from the bedroom before they could film.
