Story, screenplay, direction, and cinematography combined with stellar performances from the entire cast tell a compelling story of life growing up on the river in Alabama. The two young teens at the center of the story learn first hand about love, loyalty, betrayal, obsession, and murder. 5 stars.

    This movie is an over-the-top blast!
