About the Movie

Louis Batiste (Samuel L. Jackson) is a popular physician in 1960s Louisiana who has a beautiful wife (Lynn Whitfield), a loving family and a weakness for women. While his wife ignores his infidelities, his youngest daughter Eve is crushed when she catches her dad in a compromising situation. Her subsequent revelations tear the family apart in Kasi Lemmons' powerful film, which won Best First Feature at the Independent Spirit Awards.

Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: Smollett, however, is a find with a smile that illuminates the screen -- the dominant performer in a uniformly well-acted film. – Mike Clark, USA Today, Jun 24, 2010

Fresh: An intensely emotional drama that mixes elements of Southern Gothic with the kinds of characters and tensions that prevail in the plays of Southern writers like Tennessee Williams. – Emanuel Levy, Variety, Jul 7, 2010

Fresh: There has never been a film quite like Kasi Lemmons' shimmering Eve's Bayou. – Kevin Thomas, Los Angeles Times, Mar 19, 2008

Rotten: A gothic and, for better or worse, poetic memoir about a young girl and her family of Creole aristocrats. – Mick LaSalle, San Francisco Chronicle, Oct 18, 2008
