Sayles and Renzi give us a winner in Honeydripper, 29 May 2010

John Sayles and Maggie Renzi have offered their audiences so many entertaining 'slice of life' movies but this is the best one yet. Slow and lazy times in the South don't necessarily mean the living is easy . . . Tyrone has to make some heavy-duty decisions if he wants to stay in business . . . decisions that could make or break not only his business but his reputation as well. f you have your own business you may feel more anxiety as Tyrone tries to bring in customers. And the music is not to be missed. Blues and Keb'Mo' and rockin'roll music are an integral part of the narrative. The love story between two of the younger generation (don't want to give away a spoiler) is very sweet. High quality ensemble cast.The relationships between the characters play true to real life.
Thought some may be interested in this very nice ensemble piece. I viewed the movie on the Internet at http:www.moviesonline.cc which has some free and some pay for view. The cost is very low though, like renting a DVD without the hassle of leaving home. The IMDB page can be found at http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0829193/. The "Honeydripper" also won awards at the Thessaloniki film festival although I don't think the list on IMDB includes the wins.
