Simple, Barely Entertaining And Way Too Stereotypical To Respect.
An overly sensitive type might take this film as race baiting, since its plot is centered around a black-white melodramatic theme, executed in every offensive and liberally applied double standard and fantasy of the US south during the 1960's . I'd only ascribe that manner of evil to a film intended to use race as a tool of media manipulation and it is simply not the case here. What's plainly evident after the first ten minutes, even to a casual viewer, is the authors of this play were just too dense to understand what they'd done. As for the actors, my guess is they took their tiny paychecks and ran for the hills, laughing all the way. Basically, this is a micro-budget film made by people with micro-minds, designed specifically to entertain the same. And just for the record film makers, those who attempt to rewrite history through entertainment, like their counterparts who forget the lessons of history, are doomed to repeat all the worst mistakes. Skip this one.
