From Back Cover:
"AWARD-WORTHY PERFORMANCES BY SAMUEL L. JACKSON & CHRISTINA RICCI."
-JIM FERGUSON, ABC-TV
In this tale of love, loss and faith, Academy Award Nominee Samuel L. Jackson (Pulp Fiction, Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith) and Christina Ricci (Sleepy Hollow) seek redemption Down South through the power of the blues and the transcendence of an unlikely friendship.
"JUSTIN TIMBERLAKE GIVES A FINE, SENSITIVE PERFORMANCE."
-DAVID EDELSTEIN, NEW YORK MAGAZINE
Although the advertisements for this film would have you believe that it's some kind of pseudo-porno film, it is actually a very engaging movie about redemption and friendship with some kick-ass blues music to set the mood. Oh, and Samuel L. Jackson learned to sing and play the guitar and does his own performances for this film.
Rated R (MPAA)
