Grossly Disappointing and totally Bond Bread
25 September 2015 | by montythedogSee all my reviews

I understand Ms. Waite felt compelled to write about her memories of her father. However,I must say this was one of the most unrealistic and absurdly stupid movies I have ever watched. I can only say Mr. Bailey was an opportunist, a sexist, guilty of a misdemeanor,and possibly felony 1. He's a cotton farmer who returns from work every day as if he just walked out of REI catalog in his spotless truck. He dismisses his wife's request for more help, takes advantage of a car salesman, surrounds himself with nothing but white people (the only workers you ever see in the field, for a hot flash, is his family minus him)no migrants,no people of color. Do not waste you time-nothing to do with integrity and honesty.
