" WHY the bad reviews?" Someone asked. They thought it was good. Well written . Well directed and the actors were good. ( AND IT WAS ) Spot on . Here is the reason they are some bad reviews. Some people have never experienced THIS life . They have no idea that people actually do LIVE LIKE THIS . KUDOS to Ron Howard who also did not grow up in Hillbilly Country but did an excellent job of making this TRUE STORY so accurate on screen. All the lead actors were amazing and they TRULY portrayed the people they were supposed to be in this. One of my friends said they only part she didn't like was the CURSING . " Did they really need to use that language?" She asked me . Absolutely. THAT is normal language for these poor small towns . If you grew up there you would understand that. F%[email protected]$ was a word I heard as child as commonly as rich people hear " yes sir" . It was necessary for them accurately portray these people . This movie made me cry , because it was TRUE TO LIFE . It brought back many memories for me . I lived this . I too chose to leave and " be someone." Thank you Glen Close for portraying " Meemaw" so incredibly well . I know . I had a Meemaw just like that . THIS is a GREAT movie . And if you " don't get it" ... maybe it's because you were born with a SILVER SPOON in your mouth and it is probably STILL THERE. Get out and see some of the REAL WORLD .
