Aroview: After a debilitating accident, soap-opera super-bitch Mary MacDonnell returns to Louisiana and finds an unlikely soulmate in her black 'assistant', Alfre Woodard. A sharp, far from sentimental portrait of women dealt with a bad hand.
5 stars (Exceptional) Underplayed, as usual. Sayles has incredible imagination & the movie is filled with unforgettable characters. Sayles is a genius & this is a truly great movie with subtlety at many levels. ~Anon
