From Page to Screen: The Making of Bloodworth
Anatomy of a Song: "You Don't Tell Me What To Do"
Top Customer Reviews
Hillary Duff is luminous as the girl who befriends the sensitive grandson,the one character actively trying to rise above the adult male failures of the family.Together the two seventeen year olds strike a note of hope in this swamp of adult anger, self pity, and irresponsibility.If you enjoy watching a movie more for the acting and less for intricacies of plot you will like the movie.
Note: W. Earl Brown also wrote the screenplay for Bloodworth. You may remember him as Dan Dority,Swearingen's henchman in Deadwood.
This film is, at its core, a coming of age picture. The problem is that it's set amidst a family tragedy that I don't ever feel is solved. When cut deeper, we're left with a lead character who really for no logical reason or reason we can see and experience comes of age and moves on. This is one of those films that will neither uplift you or really evoke all that much emotion from you, so if you're looking for that, look elsewhere. If you're just looking for something to pop on and zone out to, you might not be disappointed.
I was a little disappointed in Dwight's role, only because I wished there was more of him in the movie because he is such a great talent as well.It would have been really neat to hear him sing an Appalachian song as well maybe sitting on his front porch in the movie.
Trust me... go out and buy the Movie. It's worth every penny.
Cinematography and scenery are nice (it was filmed in North Carolina), and so is the accompanying music, but the short and varied storyline seems to want to go everywhere too fast. There's a disgruntled postalman, a flirtatious young woman, several mysterious townfolk and lots of old, run-down wooden homes. Everyone isn't just flawed, they are seriously flawed and it's impossible to have any sympathy with any of the characters except for Fleming, who remains the only person who seems to have passion, sympathy and drive to get out of the life he's led sofar.Read more ›
I understand that the film comes from a novel and several reviews here recommend the book. Apparently the facts in the story are better explained in the novel than in the film. I had a hard time figuring out just why the old guy came back home after twenty years. There were some dark flashbacks, showing a possible murder? I guess that's what the secret was. I rather lost interest in the details of the plot but did sit through it just to see what happened to the young guy.
Fans of K. K. will probably like the film. But he's been in so many better ones, I'd can't recommend sitting through all of this just to see him.

I like Kris Kristofferson, and this movie was a good one with him in it. Not a big budget movie by any means, but a good family type drama with him in it. Will watch again.Published on June 20, 2013 by Hillz88
