This title is temporarily unavailable

1950. Rural Alabama. Cotton harvest. It's a make-or-break weekend for the Honeydripper Lounge and its owner, piano player Tyrone "Pine Top" Purvis. Deep in debt to the liquor man, the chicken man and the landlord, Tyrone is desperate to lure the young cotton pickers and local army base recruits into his juke joint, away from Touissant's, the rival joint across the way. His plan to hire a guitar legend goes awry and Tyrone is forced to take drastic action in a final scheme to save the club.

Great movie with a strong positive message and positive values. The scenery is beautiful, the lighting superb, but most of all the cast is perfect. Loved the acting and the manner in which the characters dressed. I also loved how this movie built up to the finale--- great music that changed the course of the main character's destiny. There are so many positive messages in this story. A genuine "feel good" movie

It's the perfect southern story from the fifties, will watch again as there are lots of undertones.

It holds your attention. Something very bad is brewing in the background. And in the foreground Thank goodness the evil shadow leaves town and the town of Harmony gets its name back.
