Routine movie about life in the deep south during the 1940s. It doesn't really tug at your heart. It was nice to see Maya Angelou in the movie. Probably my favorite part was seeing Kathryn Erbe in a different role from what I'm used to seeing her in (Law & Order: Criminal Intent).
Anyhow, I wouldn't recommend the movie to anyone as more than background noise while you are multi-tasking with something else.
