A SOUTHERN GOTHIC DOUBLE FEATURE

Eve's Bayou (1992)

Starring Jurnee Smollett, Megan Good, Samuel L. Jackson, Lynn Whitfield Mozelle, Debbi Morgan, Jake Smollett and Dihann Carroll. Written and directed by Kasi Lemmons.

"'Memory is a selection of images, some elusive, others printed indelibly on the brain. The summer I killed my father, I was 10 years old.' With those opening words, "Eve's Bayou" coils back into the past, into the memories of a child who grew up in a family both gifted and flawed, and tried to find her own way to the truth. The words explain the method of the film. This will not be a simple-minded story that breathlessly races from A to B. It is a selection of memories, filtered through the eyes of a young girl who doesn't understand everything she sees--and filtered, too, through the eyes of her older sister, and through the eyes of an aunt who can foretell everyone's future except for her own."

-Roger Ebert

BABY DOLL (1956)

Starring Carroll Baker, Karl Malden, Eli Wallach and Rip Torn. Directed by Elia Kazan and written by Tennessee Williams.

"Starkly photographed on location in Mississippi, story revolves around a child bride, her witless and blustery husband, and a smarmy business rival bent on using both of them. Condemned by Legion of Decency when released, this Tennessee Williams story, although tame by today's standards, still sizzles. Film debuts of Wallach and Torn."

-Leonard Maltin
