[title: Glennville, Georgia 1971]
In deep Dixieland, the month of October is almost summery.
I had come south to visit my father. Mother had died a few years before, and Daddy was living all alone. He wouldn't have it otherwise.
Looking at that old house, a painful nostalgia gripped me for the south itself, the old south I had known, and the people in it. When I was thirteen years old, a girl came to this house. I overheard my father decide in a conference ...

In the UK, the BBFC removed around thirty seconds from the scene where 15 year-old Lukas Haas and Laura Dern are in bed together.

Despite this, the BBC have broadcast the uncut version several times and the cuts were later fully waived for the 2002 Guild DVD release. See more »
Set in the South of the 1930's, film tells the story of "Rambling" Rose(Beautiful and appealing Laura Dern) who comes to the home of "Daddy" Hillyer(Robert Duvall), his wife "Mother"(Diane Ladd) and children, one of whom named Buddy(Lucas Haas) will come to love Rose, as she settles into their lives as a maid, but whose charm and beauty attract the attentions of all the local men, much to her employer's consternation, which will lead to a chain of events to have a lasting impact on the family, especially Buddy.
Very well acted film recreates its specific time & place quite well, and has an interesting story and character development. Only missteps with the framing device of the now adult Buddy(played by John Heard, who doesn't much resemble Haas!) not working well, seemed tacked on and anticlimactic. Still, a nice little film anyway, with many memorable scenes and colorful dialogue.
