“The creators of Hustle and Flow have another raw hit on their hands!” - Hollywood ReporterSamuel L. Jackson, Christina Ricci and Justin Timberlake headline this gritty metamorphosis of deeply wounded people, each hungry for a better life. Bitter and broken by a cheating wife, Lazarus is lost in spent dreams until he comes across Rae, beaten and left for dead on the side of the road. This God-fearing black man quickly learns that the white woman he's nursing back to health is a person of ill repute from the same Tennessee town in which he lives. Worse, she has a peculiar anxiety disorder - an affliction caused by lost love.With its heart entrenched firmly in the blues, Black Snake Moan boasts a killer soundtrack of north Mississippi, blood-and-guts tunes.
