"...One of the best films of the year -- elegant, sensuous, haunting....EVE'S BAYOU is serenely confident..."
A father's philandering nature is only one of several problems for a black southern family, but, to 9 year-old Eve, it is the most immediate. As her suspicions deepen, so does her desire to bring the infidelity to an end, even if it means calling down justice on its perpetrator. A stylish, southern Gothic tale of family discord and coming of age by first-time writer/director Lemmons.
