My Louisiana Sky

A delightful if rather genteel coming-of-age drama set in rural Louisiana in the mid-1950s. Twelve-year-old tomboy Tiger Ann (Kelsey Keel) is the child of mentally retarded parents, and after her grandmother and guardian dies, she's forced to choose between living in Baton Rouge with her aunt (Juliette Lewis) and staying put. Director Adam Arkin sets a leisurely pace, exploring the heroine's minor pleasures and frustrations, and pays close attention to the small-town milieu, especially the allure of the big city. The ensemble acting is solid, distinguished by Keel and by Karen Robinson as the no-nonsense maid. 98 min.
