We previously have featured the work of writer/director Kasi Lemmons in our recommendations of the films Harriet and Talk To Me. Today our Rialto Recommends is her first feature 1997's EVE'S BAYOU which stars Samuel L. Jackson, Jurnee Smollett, Meagan Good and Lynn Whitfield. Summer heats up in rural Louisiana beside Eve’s Bayou, 1962, as the Batiste family tries to survive the secrets they’ve kept and the betrayals they’ve endured. EVE'S BAYOU marks a striking feature debut for director Kasi Lemmons, layering terrific performances and Southern mysticism into a measured meditation on disillusionment and forgiveness. Variety called EVE'S BAYOU "An intensely emotional drama that mixes elements of Southern Gothic with the kinds of characters and tensions that prevail in the plays of Southern writers like Tennessee Williams." While the Washington Post said "A movie unto itself, a rousing, original yarn about family life that includes everyone." EVE'S BAYOU is streaming on Hulu, Amazon Prime, DirectTV and Epix. It is available to rent for a modest fee from RedBox, Apple, Amazon, GooglePlay, YouTube, Vudu and others.
