  • Men are men, and women are no end of sorry in Little Chenier, a steamy saga of jealousy and revenge set on a waterlogged spit of Louisiana land.

  • Where writer-director Bethany Ashton really excels is in capturing the complex dynamics of small-town life.

    March 13, 2008
  • Bethany Ashton Wolf's steamy Southern-Gothic melodrama doesn't miss a cliche... but it's steeped in authentic local atmosphere.

    February 29, 2008 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…
  • Such unflattering scenarios are common in movies about the rural South, but the melodramatic crescendos in Little Chenier don't play out smoothly or credibly. Heavy-handed storytelling undermines the film's good intentions and authentic locations.
