The sins of the fathers. In a town near Little Rock, Lucy Fowler works hard for a construction firm; on weekends she drinks, goes home with someone, and come early morning, wakes and leaves as fast as she can. She cares a lot about her father, newly back in town, a painfully shy man who has nothing to say to her. She does go to a Holy Roller church with him about the same time that she starts, fitfully, a relationship with Cal Percell, new in town and a good guy. She kisses him sober, but still has demons to confront. What's the source of her careless ways; can she turn coal into a diamond?Written by
I just saw the the movie yesterday at the Tower Theatre in Salt Lake City obviously during Sundance. The place was packed. The movie was 97 minutes which I thought was long. The movie kept my attention somewhat (wasn't dozing off) but it was just missing something. No high or low points in the movie. After listening to the Director and finding out that it it has taken 5 years to produce this movie I was shocked. Ashley Judd did an OK job of acting but this movie was about a lady drinker who loved to have sex with no relationship. Thats it. Nothing more. The country music in the movie was good. I would consider buying the soundtrack if there was one. Don't count on it, according to the director.
