So till, that it almost stops on several occassions. No dialogue when you want there to be, I just didnt know what the hell I was watching it for, and didnt feel like it affected me, or had anything to say, wasted my time! Well acted though So till, that it almost stops on several occassions.

I'm from the South, know many people who share these types of values, and found this film horribly condenscending and full of sterotypes. I think poor Scott Glenn had few lines than Boo Radley in TKAM. Why do all the "good" country I'm from the South, know many people who share these types of values, and found this film horribly condenscending and full of sterotypes. I think poor Scott Glenn had few lines than Boo Radley in TKAM. Why do all the "good" country people look like a Jerry Springer show? Country people can't look sophisticated (and thin)? I almost thought the family would say, "Y'all come back, y' hear?" at the end. Bigoted and prejudice in the worse way: for our own good. Expand

To me, this film was one big construct. The characters were excruciatingly unbelievable, with the possible exception of Amy Adams's Ashley, and the storyline felt devised by someone who thinks in cliche. Very hard to watch.

Sinister "Deliverance" meets simpering Melanie Wilkes by way of the lobotomized dysfunction of "The Royal Tennenbaums". A feast of sterotypes and short cuts. C'mon, put a littie effort into it next time. This movie was an insult, I Sinister "Deliverance" meets simpering Melanie Wilkes by way of the lobotomized dysfunction of "The Royal Tennenbaums".
