Join BloomBars for a modern masterpiece of Southern Gothic…
Sex, lies, and voodoo: this scintillating family drama – steeped in Creole folklore, magic, and mysticism – is one of the most distinctive films of the 1990’s.
Eve’s Bayou (1997, 109 min, R), by Kasi Lemmons – Over the course of a long, hot Louisiana summer, a 10-year-old black girl, Eve Batiste (Jurnee Smollett-Bell), discovers that her family’s affluent existence is merely a facade. The philandering of her suave doctor father, Louis (Samuel L. Jackson), creates a rift, throwing Eve’s mother, Roz (Lynn Whitfield), and teenage sister, Cisely (Meagan Good), into emotional turmoil. Eve, though, manages to find some solace with her quirky psychic aunt, Mozelle (Debbi Morgan). (MATURE AUDIENCES).
The screening will be followed by audience discussion and Q&A.
