R | | Drama, Music
A drama set in the American South, where a precocious, troubled girl finds a safe haven in the music and movement of Elvis Presley.
David Morse and Robin Wright previously co-starred in 'The Crossing Guard (1995)'.
Lewellen: I saw Elvis!
Buddy: Did not.
Lewellen: Did! And he blew me a kiss!
Buddy: You're a liar.
Lewellen: Am not!
Lewellen: Am not, you stupid!
Buddy: Well, can you meet me on the bank?
Lewellen: No, I can't. I gotta finish this for Grammie.
Buddy: Just for a little?
Lewellen: No, I can't. I gotta do this.
The 45 rpm record that Lewellen's father gave her in the truck (supposedly by Elvis on RCA) is apparently a reissue of an original which did not exist at the time.
