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
This is one of those movies that didn't get enough attention. I don't know what happened, how I missed hearing about it when it came out, maybe I was in a cave or something. I saw it last year on DVD when a friend told me about it. I really loved it, and I haven't forgotten it. In fact, just this morning, for reasons I can't explain, it came to me again and I decided to take the time to come to IMDb and write my applause for it.
Artists do not get enough positive feedback. The world is full of meanspirited critics, gossipers and hecklers. Artists simply do not get enough positive feedback. So I want to take a few minutes today to say BRAVO!!! To the entire cast and crew -- this movie is great, all the way around. It makes you feel and think deeply. It's memorable. It is everything a good movie should be! Thank you for your artistry and perseverance. The entertainment industry is a tough, crazy, freaky business. I love movies!! And this one is worth watching and worth mentioning to others.
