The large portrait in her house, showing a uniformed man with a big white mustache, is a picture of Julian Shakespeare Carr (1845-1924), one of Durham's earliest tobacco magnates, who was involved in a variety of other business enterprises and was a highly regarded philanthropist. The portrait normally resides in the North Carolina Collection of the Durham County Public Library. See more »

Watched this by pure coincidence on telly and got hooked by the awesome performance of everyone involved in this film. Story is about a decaying and nearly dead city which is suffocating its citizens. Younger people see their dreams and ambitions smashed by the lack of opportunities, middle aged people are stuck with their problems and older people long for the prosperous days when they were proud and purposeful and could live a decent life. A charismatic but very controversial businessman suddenly arrives. He carries a hazardous load. People find themselves in a painful dilemma. Should they take their risks and embrace change, or should they keep repeating their old routines that are so familiar but also hopeless and frustrating.
I really cannot understand how people are not able to relate to this story, I a mean this is probably a situation every single person who has lived on earth has come across once in their lifetime. Acting is solid and captivating. I don't get you people who voted 4.7 out of 10. What is wrong with you??
