Rent Alma on DVD


1997 Rated NR 1hr 34m

Filmmaker Ruth Leitman offers an unflinching and at times unexpectedly droll look at a deeply troubled Southern family and how its abuses, traumas and addictions are mediated by a regional culture rich in biblical and moral overtones. Margie Thorpe inherits an extraordinary legacy of violence endured by her mother, Alma, and also carries with her the emotional scars inflicted by an alcoholic and abusive father.
