Blurrysleeps’s review published on Letterboxd:
I am in awe. I have been anticipating watching this movie for quite some time but it wasn’t available to me. Now that it has been added to prime, I was finally able to watch it and I am completely blown away.
One of the biggest tragedies is that I barely found out about this film. Eve’s Bayou is definitely a hidden gem that I looked over. I absolutely loved the scenery as it reminded me of my home back in Louisiana. This definitely felt like a film that I would have watched with my grandma when we would do our binge watches of ‘Fried Green Tomatoes’ and ‘Stand by me’.
This film has a great cast and I was surprised to learn that this was Kasi Lemmon’s debut film. I will definitely be checking out more films from her in the future because man... this movie blew me away.
