9568: The Feast of All Saints

From: Dwillautho@aol.com

This movie was based on the book by Ann Rice and as a historian of AFrican 
American culture and with extensive research on the gens de couleur (free 
people of color), I thought it was actually done nicely.  The movie was
close to the book.  Of course some details were left out.  I think it is 
nitpicking to criticize the accents.
This movie was about the system of placage and how that system was a
and not to be glamourized.  They did a fine job of casting.  That rape
obviously was not voudoo, but an act of vengeance and evil.
