I didn't expect to like this one. Turns out I did. The story of the rural south in the 70s is well written and the dialog so realistic it brought back memories. The acting by the three main characters was competent, not award winning but solid and believable. I knew quite a few young women back in the day, living in the rural south in love less marriages. Sad and heartbreaking. This film captures that well. The mystery that slowly unravels is also, sadly, quite true to life in my experience. Tragic. Not a true ghost story or an action packed drama but more a poignant slice of southern adversity and sorrow. The young lady that portrayed the daughter reminded me of many I have encountered. Thoughtful film worth the time. No one who knows me would expect me to like it but cannot help it, I did.
