"...Stylish..."
New York Times - 12/25/1998
"...Unabashedly inspirational....[With] calm, stately performances of Mary Alice and Mr. Freeman. These two fine actors lend their roles a gravity, balance and underlying sense of sorrow..."
Los Angeles Times - 12/25/1998
"...Unflinchingly, DOWN IN THE DELTA goes straight to the heart....The film, appropriately traditional in style itself, comes full circle in a rich, substantial way that is all the more gratifying..."
