“The summer I killed my father, I was ten years old . . .” So begins this spellbinding feature debut by KASI LEMMONS (Harriet), an evocative journey into the maze of memory steeped in fragrant southern-gothic atmosphere. In 1960s Louisiana, a young girl (Friday Night Lights’ JURNEE SMOLLETT) sees her well-to-do family unravel in the wake of the infidelities of her charming father (Pulp Fiction’s SAMUEL L. JACKSON)—setting in motion a series of deceptions and betrayals that will upend her world and challenge her understanding of reality. Rooted in Creole history, folklore, and mysticism, Eve’s Bayou is a scintillating showcase for a powerhouse ensemble of Black actresses—including LYNN WHITFIELD (Madea’s Family Reunion), DEBBI MORGAN (Roots), and the legendary DIAHANN CARROLL (Claudine) as a voodoo priestess— as well as a profoundly cathartic exploration of trauma, forgiveness, and the elusive nature of truth.
