Eve's Bayou

Eve's Bayou ★★★★

Former actress Kasi Lemmons tremendous debut film, Eves Bayou follows Eve Bastiste and her family in a well-to-do Creole town in Louisiana. Eve struggles with revelations about her father and turns to voodoo for resolution. Did she do the right thing and is what she was led to believe true? Great cast led by Sam Jackson, Lynn Whitfield, Vondie Curtis-Hall and Diahann Caroll delivers. Noteworthy at the time for having a female director, DP and Editor.
