About the Movie

Autumn of 1941 in Salty Creek, a fishing village in South Carolina, two interracial lovers, one an artist who also fishes and sells crabs to the townsfolk, the other an Asian gentleman, are swept up in the tides of history. Against the town's surge of misguided patriotism a trio of women reject law and propriety to save this mysterious young man.

Top Critics' Reviews

Rotten: The gently nostalgic mood and sleepy pacing effectively erase the movie's necessary edge. – Jeannette Catsoulis, New York Times, Feb 2, 2017

Fresh: Maggie Greenwald's first adult-oriented feature since 'Songcatcher' is an affecting, rose-scented study of small-town prejudice and female friendship. – Guy Lodge, Variety, Jan 23, 2016

Fresh: There's a clumsy, soapy tepidness to the procession of plot points, but within individual scenes, the actors pierce the genteel surface. – Sheri Linden, Los Angeles Times, Jan 26, 2017

Rotten: The premise... demands more heat and complexity than this hokey 2016 drama provides. – Leah Pickett, Chicago Reader, Feb 9, 2017
