Synopsis

In the summer of 1965, glamorous, eccentric Lucille, does away with her abusive husband, leaves her seven kids with her mom, and takes off for Hollywood to pursue her dreams of TV stardom. During this time, her good-natured nephew Peejoe, a backwoods Alabama boy, is having his own adventure. He witnesses the local sheriff accidentally kill an African American youth who was swimming in a public pool. Moved by the plight of Blacks in the South, the lad does the right thing, despite of threats to himself and his family. The film is a cross between bizarre fantasy and a Civil Rights drama.

Dove Review

Content Description

Five or six profanities and several expletives; macabre humor about a woman who killed her abusive husband with rat poison, then cut him up – this is often discussed, but we do not see the deed; the woman carries her husband’s head around in a hat box, but we never see the noggin; guilt-causing hallucinations; thievery; racial epithets and strife; some brutality, including beatings; brief sexuality, but no nudity.
