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.
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 ›
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 thought overall a good movie. Kris Kristofferson's part was small and I thought maybe more music. Got the movie because he was in it and didn't know much about it.Published 3 months ago by Amazon Customer
