    Wonderful movie, the characters are so real you can believe them, the attmosphere is right on target, the pace is superb. The lead actress did an incredible job, I am so impressed with her performance that I can not wait to see the next movie she is in. Overall, well done, one of my favorite movies ever.

    I saw this movie on a recommendation not knowing anything about it. Afterwards, I said I'm no critic but this should be nominated for best picture and Jennifer and John should also. A few days later their nominations were announced. It has been a very long time since a movie sucked me in and I thought I was there. The story line is incidental. It's the characters and dialogue that grab you. The fact that you think they just used hillbillys is a credit to their performances. If they were hillbillys, they were damn good. It's got my vote for best picture. Oh, that's right, I don't have a vote.
