RENTAL Eve's Bayou (15) 104 mins

This gothic melodrama from actress, writer and first time director Kasi Lemmons has its setting in a steamy, swampy Louisiana Bayou community and deals with the subject of selective memory.

It’s the tale of ten-year-old Eve (Jurnee Smollett) and her experiences of growing up within her seemingly perfect Creole family. After witnessing her father (Samuel L. Jackson) smooching with a family friend, Eve decides to overlook the incident as an mistaken perception on her part. However, when her older sister Cisely (Meagan Good) later claims that her father has indecently fondled her, Eve doesn’t question the validity of the accusation and vows to kill him in her rage.

The spirit world and voodoo magic play strong roles in the story, allowing Lemmons to imaginatively explore her

cinematography and poetic storytelling thrown in. (Beth Williams) Avar/ab/e to rent from ‘f/er.’ 20 Jan See prewerzc page 28
