Eve's Bayou

Brevitas

Samuel L. Jackson produces and stars in this gothic tale of infidelity and voodoo in the Louisiana bayou, but graciously hands the story over to the lesser known actresses surrounding him, including Debbi Morgan as a haunted clairvoyant and Jurnee Smollett as his precocious daughter. Director and writer Kasi Lemmons demonstrates impressive style and maturity in this dark, hypnotic film.
