    Despite an effective Jim Caviezel, this anecdotal drama never rises above the level of lightly likable.

    Savannah gets by on touches of grace and spirited performances, especially by Caviezel. After being so serious for so very long, it’s great fun to see him take on a “genuine character” with all the boozing, brawling and shooting that entails.

    The film’s tale ends up being less rich than its lovely Georgia settings.

    Annette Haywood-Carter’s slow-paced film features a plethora of colorful characters and incidents that register with little dramatic impact.

You have to appreciate the good things, which are really excellent the wonderful scenery and the chance to discover Judy Henske aka "Queen of the Beatniks". Her "Wade in the Water" and the rest of the score are a plus. It's an interesting story, told with good humor, although the storyline is not very clear...but at least someone tried to tell a different kind of story, one about a society in transition. Jim Caviezel's lead as Ward Allen seemed overwrought, the director got a little obvious with some of his characterizations. Full Review »
