Storyline

For world-weary Sheriff's deputy Bernadette, this is both her beat and her hometown, and a railroad conglomerate's bid to buy up family homes and land by the acre brings long-simmering tensions bubbling to the surface. When Bernadette's lover Leslie, a public-interest lawyer defending the poor, turns up dead, she must decide whether to walk the line or take on her town's oldest and wealthiest family. Written by JK

Great Southern Gothic Picture
29 April 2020 | by alexanderjmarinoSee all my reviews

Amazing directing and performances, especially lead Aasha Davis. The film really nails small-town Louisiana. Dark and gripping to the end.
