Painfully bad, and I hate to leave bad reviews, but the acting is terrible. Naomi Judd shouldn’t have been chosen as the grandma.
Boudreaux & Clotilde would give dis fo’ (4) tums down, chér’!
What a disappointment! I had plans to watch all 4 Ruby movies. But couldn’t even get to the first 5 minutes of this! Bayous, swamp, moss-covered Cypress, a traiteur but no Cajun accent!
I knew when Ruby first mentions “Grand-mère” in the intro, neither the cast nor director had put one foot in Cajun country nor any of Louisiana’s bayou country before starting filming.
I was raised in the state, & although the city I was raised in had a closer connection with New Orleans, it’s surrounded by Cajun towns, & I worked with many. We called my grandmothers “mon mon”, like “maw maw” with more nasal (French) sound. I was anxious to hear Grand-mere (Naomi Judd) speak. Same Kentucky accent, that no traiteur (healer) raised & living “in the bayou” would have. Besides them, Ruby’s boyfriend (?), Paul who asked if she was going to the “fais do do dance”, had no hint of the accent a boy raised there would have. He also didn’t need to say “dance”, after asking her if she was going to the “fais do do”.
I stopped it after the scene of the couple buying preserves from Catherine (Naomi Judd), when the man said her preserves were the best in the bayou, in his stereotypical non-Cajun Southern accent.
For the record: In South & Southwest Louisiana, & even below New Orleans, you’ll hear various French accents. People in northern Louisiana, beginning at Baton Rouge speak like other southerners. In the New Orleans area, the typical accents sound closer to New Jersey/Brooklyn. I worked with a woman from New Jersey, who said people were always asking her if she was from Chalmette, which is east of downtown N. O. in St. Bernard Parish.
This movie would only appeal to people who know nothing about the location & time, or Louisianians who are ashamed of the accent, hopefully there aren’t many.
I’m not a never Lifetime viewer. I often enjoyed some Lifetime movies I used to watch with one of my aunts. And more recently I enjoyed the 5 V. C. Andrews novel-based movies about Heaven Leigh Casteel. Definitely not Oscar-worthy, but enjoyable. But I have no idea if they were authentic to the location the stories took place. Ruby is not even close.
