This is one of the better southern dramas I’ve seen. With outsider art, culture clashes, and unhappy marriages all tied up with both the optimism and the religion you can only find in the south, you can’t really go wrong.
This movie is painful to watch sometimes, not because it’s bad but because it feels so honest. You see a man whose wife is fixing to have a baby make a pass at his sister in law. It’s full of moments of rawness where people do and don’t make the right choices but either way, the vignettes are never concluded with happy endings. They’re not unhappy endings, but they’re just awfully real.
If you can’t stand seeing movies that just end with nothing better or worse or really resolved, then you won’t like this. If you have a taste for movies that are somewhat arty and ask a bit more from you, then try this one out.
