Savannah Recounts the True Story of a Larger-Than-Life Outcast Outdoorsman

Details

Savannah

Opens Friday at Movies of Lake Worth, 7380 Lake Worth Road, Lake Worth; 561-968-4545; moviesofdelray.com.

With all the momentum of dripping molasses, Savannah recounts the true-life story of Ward Allen (Jim Caviezel), a larger-than-life outdoorsman too big to be boxed in by early 20th-century societal boundaries. Rejecting his privileged plantation heritage to hunt ducks alongside freed slave sidekick Christmas (Chiwetel Ejiofor), Ward proves a Shakespeare-quoting wild man increasingly unfit for modern life. Drenched in dewy-eyed nostalgia, tinged with sorrow for the way changing tides made Ward an outcast, the story overflows with reverence but is drastically short on passion or suspense.
