William Faulkner's Deep South drama of tragedy and expose of a "proper" community riddled with moral decay to the household of a governor of Mississippi during the 1920's. The governor's cherished and properly married daughter makes an astonishing confession to the governor just before the execution of a household servant for the murder of the daughter's baby.Written by
Other than the overt racism and sexual repression of the era when this movie was made, I cannot think of a single reason for the total rewrite of Faulkner's powerful novel about the seamy underside of life in the Depression era south. And to pin the murder on the nanny, WOW! The novel ends with the execution of a completely innocent man who refuses to defend himself for a set of very complex reasons. Perhaps the producers felt they had to "dumb it down" for a simple minded movie audience.
