What a great gem of a film. Exactly the kind of unheard of movie I love to discover on Kanopy. Wonderful acting, gorgeous setting and a story worth telling.

I wanted this film to never end. Brenda's comment below summarizes it beautifully. What stereotypes overlook is that there could be love between different races. That sometimes the line between master and servant was blurred. This is such a beautiful movie!

I think that people are shaped by their painful memories and the repulsion of the heritage. Aggrieved guilt and shame.

Touching examination of small town southern USA, religious bigotry, racism, and intolerance of any kind of difference, all tempered by true love, real friendship and simple kindnesses. Beautifully crafted piece.

Beautiful scenery. Truly captures what it is like to live in the South. A little disappointed with the development of the plot though.

Slow moving but a good story about interracial romance.
