I wasn't sure what to expect from this flick but since there was a nice cast, I thought I should give it a try anyway. The usual complain concerning this movie would be that the whole thing is too sentimental, syrupy and not really realistic. Personally, I thought the main issue was that there were too many characters and too many sub-plots (the main character has killed her mother when she was 4 ... read more

“I wasn't sure what to expect from this flick but since there was a nice cast, I thought I should give it a try anyway.

Personally, I thought the main issue was that there were too many characters and too many sub-plots (the main character has killed her mother when she was 4 years old, she then ran away from her violent father, you have also some racial issues, the civil rights movement, some mental illness, 2 love stories including one interracial, some religious stuff, some honey making and I'm probably forgetting a few things...).

"Another Dakota Fanning film, an even better one! She's fab in this! The rest of the cast is strong too, Queen Latifah, Jennifer Hudson, Alicia Keys (who's absolutely fantastic btw), Tristan Wilds as well as Brits Sophie Okonedo and Paul Bettany. I love film about racism in the 60s for some reason... "
