Summary
  • After an auto accident leaves her paralyzed, ex-soap opera star May-Alice Culhane returns to her now-empty family home in the bayous of Louisiana where she proceeds to drive away a succession of nurses-- until Chantelle. May-Alice and Chantelle form an unlikely friendship, and explore the bayou, as well as the murkier aspects of men, romance, and family
  • A handicapped ex-soap opera star and her nurse explore the murkier aspects of men, romance, and family in the Louisiana bayou
  • "... brilliant portrayal of a wisecracking soap opera star who returns home to rural Louisiana after an auto accident leaves her paralyzed. Her cruel but hilarious humor and hard drinking drive away a succession of nurses until she meets her match in Chantelle. Together, they explore the Louisiana bayou, as well as the murkier waters of men, romance and family. An exhilarating film that carries the viewer on waves of laughter and discover."--Container
