Short Film of the Day: Good Country People

Why Watch? Flannery O’Connor‘s classic short story comes to life here as a 1) look at 1960s filmmaking techniques and 2) an experiment in adapting literary content for the screen.

Those who have read it will note a few changes (and can question whether they needed to be made), but all can appreciate the test of dialogue and the complexity of human interaction.

And, of course, the wooden leg.

What does it cost? Just 10 minutes of your time.
