A House Divided


A House Divided
Hancock County, Georgia, 1874.

In the aftermath of the terrible Civil War which has devastated the South, Amanda America Dixon (Jennifer Beals) returns home to find she has become the sole heir to a vast cotton plantation. But the dreadful secret which has blighted her life threatens to deprive her of the birthright which her beloved father David (Sam Waterston) had struggled for so long to create.

Raised by her father and grandmother to be the perfect white Southern Belle, Amanda's true mother was a black slave, Julia (Lisa Gay Hamilton). Confronted with the forces of greed and bigotry, Amanda has to face not only the hatred of a racist world, but the complex truth of a family whose lives have been built on a lie.

Based on a true story, A House Divided is a powerful and subtle drama of intolerance, love, betrayal and courage.

97 minutes, Parental Guidance (Prejudice).
