WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

Based on the novella by Eudora Welty, this jubilant, blue grass infused fairy tale focuses on Robin Hood-like Jamie Lockhart, a legendary character in Mississippi folklore, who rescues Clemment Musgrove (the wealthiest plantation owner in Natchez Trace) from the Harp gang and attempts to woo and win his daughter Rosamund. Standing in his way is her stepmother Salome, whose romantic designs on the gentleman robber lead her to plot the girl's murder. What ensues is a series of escapades worthy of a Grimm fairy tale, which it was before inspiring Welty, whose adaptation places it in an early 19th century American setting.
