A half-baked piece of Southern Gothic, Ido Mizrahy's debut film wears its influences a little too closely on its sleeve.

[A] stilted, somewhat pretentious Southern Gothic tale.

The causality here is somewhat thin -- any time one story really gets cooking, we're jettisoned to another -- but the ensemble cast does good work, and the location becomes a character unto itself.

Offers a slice of special education-tinged Southern Gothic minus the evocative eccentricity.

Audience Reviews for Things That Hang From Trees

I decided to give this film a chance, because it really is an intriguing story. Set in 1969, in a small town in Florida. An alcoholic father has abandoned his wife and child. The child is slow and has all kinds of
problems, so the mother is forced to open up a business. In 1969 what kind of business does every small southern town need? You guessed it, a sex shop! It's a different plot and seemed like it would be a very interesting story, but looks can be deceiving. They hire writers to make the "official" description of the movie, so it sound great and you'll go see it, and in this case they got me. This has got to be one of the slowest and most pointless movies I have ever seen. Everyone is portrayed as stupid, the film is choppy and makes no sense, and on top of that it's just a total bore! They fooled me, don't let them fool you! Avoid this one!
