William Faulner story based on a play by Horton Foote about a simpleton, Jackson played by Robert DuVall's first major starring role on a featuture film looking for solitude adapting to a shack amongst the backwoods. While living alone by himself isolated amongst the woods, he comes across an uneducated pregnant woman! From their he builds a rapport and decides to take her under his wing! Great performances was what was needed to pull this off and it delivered! This can also be a reflection about those hard times where uneducated men go searching for work and a identity! Somewhat small budget movie with excellent perfomances!
