Del Shores, that grand master of Southern lowlife sensibilities, has once again culled his Texas roots and come up with a winner.

The award-winning scripter of such legit hits as “Daddy’s Dyin’, Who’s Got the Will? Shores, who also helms, manages to fully explore Willadean’s horrific plight while infusing the work with such hilarity the audience is often reduced to tears and laughter within the same breath.

”, “Sordid Lives” and “Southern Baptist Sissies” peruses the life and times of abused but valiant stay-at-home trailer park housewife Willadean Winkler (Beth Grant) as she attempts to transcend the mean existence inflicted on her by cruel-to-the-bone hubby J. Set in a small Texas town, the action takes place mostly in the interior of Willadean’s neat but sparse trailer. (who earns only a meager income himself as an asphalt hauler), Willadean’s only respites from her misery are the afternoon TV talk show sessions she shares with neighbor and best friend La Sonia (Octavia Spencer), her efforts to improve herself by learning one new word a day from the dictionary and her memories of her departed children.

But, neither he, nor his girlfriend, Carrie (Michelle Forbes), has the money for a cross-country tour of murder sites, so they advertise for someone to share travel expenses.

Who they end up with is a young couple, Early Grayce (Brad Pitt) and his girlfriend, Adele (Juliette Lewis), two better examples of "poor white trash" you will never find in all of cinema.
