Movie Info

Angela Bassett stars in this powerful drama set in the Deep South in the early '60s. Ruby Delacroix (Bassett) operates a rough-and-tumble night spot in Louisiana. Between running her business, raising a teenage daughter, and trying to keep tabs on her unfaithful husband, Ruby's life hardly needs any more excitement. However, temptation presents itself in the form of Billy (Kevin Anderson), a white singer who is booked into the club. Ruby and Billy fall into a passionate affair, which proves to be a dangerous thing in the desegregated South. Produced for the Showtime premium cable network, Ruby's Bucket of Blood also features Glenn Plummer, Brian Stokes Mitchell, and Jurnee Smollett.

While Bassett, as usual, is splendid, it really should have been an opera.
