4.0 out of 5 stars Not a classic, but I like this movie July 24, 2006
Format:DVD
I happen to like all of the main actors in this film: Ally Sheedy, Phoebe Cates, Virginia Madsen and Treet Williams. If you like them, too, perhaps you'll like this movie.

Sure, Heart of Dixie has its flaws. I won't argue with the previous reviewer, other than to say that a one-star rating is awfully harsh.

This is not a civil rights movie in the way that Ghosts of Mississippi or Mississippi Burning is a civil rights movie. It's more a coming of age story. I enjoyed watching Ally Sheedy's character learn who she is and what she wants to become.

Yep, Heart of Dixie is lightweight. Yep, it could have been done better.

And still, I like it.

5.0 out of 5 stars This Movie is SO REAL! February 4, 2008
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
The essence of this movie, "Heart of Dixie", is so real as to what Southern Colleges were like, I know, in Mississippi...especially Ole Miss which seems to be the true Institution this movie is based on...the Integration of James Meredith...the first Black student to be forced in to an ALL White University in Mississippi. These facts were common gossip and total knowledge of the inhabitants of the State of Mississippi even more than it made NEWS all over the USA (and I'm sure the World).

As a former student at Ole Miss, I can believe the reality of what the Fraternities and Sororities were like in RULING the University. Sudents who didn't belong to these Organizations were considered of little importance; and the leading Fraternities and Sororities probably weren't much different at that time than as depicted in this movie.

These Clubs as well as Football ruled the University.

For these reasons I found the movie like a trip back in time as to what the University would have been back in that time...10 years before my residence there.

So my impression is that this movie leads to the Realistic "story" of the Integration of Ole Miss by James Meredith.

I really got into the concept of what really went on there at that time in History.

Hopefully my Review will cause no more controvery; but it's my truth.

If you want some very realistic concept of what life was like for the Southern Arristocracy in 1960, you will surely enjoy this movie.

4.0 out of 5 stars Waking up is hard to do January 22, 2011
Format:DVD
Yes, it's a lightweight when it comes to a heavyweight issue like civil rights. However, I love the contrast of the unrealistic prep world compared to the real issues happening in the 1950's. "Maggie" has been brought up in a dream world of the well to do and as a senior in college she starts to wake up to the harsh realities of life. It's well worth watching in my book.
