If you haven't seen this movie you absolutely need to! I decided to watch it because a friend recommended it and because it was filmed in the Appalachian Mtns. near Asheville, NC. I thought I might recognise places in the movie. Well it was so good I forgot to even think about that. From the minute the movie started with Dr. Lily (Janet McTeer) singing I was hooked. The movie is filled with dozens of Scots- Irish ballads. The music alone held me but it also has a good story with it. It is rated PG-13. Last night or rather early early this morning I couldn't sleep so put this movie in. No way I could get sleepy watching this! Takes us back in time to the early 1900"s to the way of life of the mountain people. Trust me.... its a must see!
