      Mike P Despite it's impressive cast and director; this is really just a highfalutin ripoff of Gone With The Wind. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 02/11/24 Full Review Jerry R I never understood the great dislike/hate peoples have for this movie. For it was a sweeping tale of America. The morose rich, the un-loved, the people trying to make a living and provide for their families. It has everything. I saw this before I knew these people were big in film. Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 10/07/23 Full Review delysid d soapy movie about the south where none of the actors are southern. micheal caine doing a southern accent. i was confused by this one. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 03/06/22 Full Review Audience Member Deep South in its plenity, with erotism, race fight, power and complicity entangled. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 01/25/23 Full Review Audience Member Absolutely terrible acting. I was so disappointed. Look at that talent! Michael Caine, Jane Fonda, Faye Dunaway, etc. It's ridiculous that this film should come off so dry, so lifeless when it deals with subject matter so emotionally chaotic and contentious. Beah Richards was the one actor in the film capable of being faithful to this subject matter. Her performance moved me and I was saddened when she left the film so early, because all quality went with her. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 02/25/23 Full Review Audience Member A movie with race-relations, and moral agendas, but none of the film is inaccurate. Nothing amazing, but some entertaining stereotypical caricatures, well-acted. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 01/25/23 Full Review Read all reviews Post a rating

      Jonathan Rosenbaum Chicago Reader The last of Preminger's overblown adaptations of best-sellers, this may have a lot more juice than sustenance, but at least Preminger keeps the juices flowing. May 8, 2013 Full Review Tom Milne Time Out The Preminger flair which made The Cardinal so enjoyable, despite its hackneyed script, seems to have deserted him in this lumbering melodrama. May 8, 2013 Full Review Variety Staff Variety An outstanding, tasteful but hard-hitting, and handsomely-produced film. May 8, 2013 Full Review Wilfrid Sheed Esquire Magazine So low has the South fallen that Otto Preminger hasn't even bothered to get the accents straight. Feb 6, 2020 Full Review Penelope Houston The Spectator What's tiring about the film is less these strangely old-fashioned lurches into melodrama (the date is supposed to be 1916: it hardly feels like it) than the self-importance of its attitudes. Jul 6, 2018 Full Review Film4 Staff Film4 You'll come away feeling that although it's worthy in its ideals, it could have done with a touch less overblown melodrama.
