Get Your Own (Finally!): The Rough South of Larry Brown
Gary Hawkins' film, The Rough South of Larry Brown -- which screened in the inaugural Oxford Film Festival in 2003, and again at the 2005 festival after Brown's untimely death -- is FINALLY AVAILABLE FOR PURCHASE on DVD.
So please get your own copy....
Named one of the 13 Essential Southern Documentaries by Oxford American Magazine, The Rough South of Larry Brown weaves interviews of Brown and his wife, Mary Annie, with narrative adaptations of three of his short stories, “Boy & Dog,” “Wild Thing,” and “Samaritans,” brought vividly to the screen with performances by Will Patton (Remember the Titans), Paul Schneider (All the Real Girls), and Natalie Canerday (Sling Blade). The result is a unique and compelling examination of the life and works of the late Oxford, Mississippi, fireman-turned-writer.
Newly re-edited and re-mastered to encompass the aftermath of Brown’s death in 2004, and featuring an original score by Vic Chesnutt, The Rough South of Larry Brown is a rich exploration of the writer behind the words and the woman behind the writer.
