A Painted House

Adaptation of the semi-autobigraphical novel by John Grisham, who narrates. The 1950s are seen through the eyes of a young boy who is part of a struggling extended-family of cotton farmers during an especially trying harvest season in the Arkansas Delta. Ten-year-old Luke Chandler has happily lived his life with his grandfather, Pappy Chandler, his grandmother, Gran, his father, Jesse, and his mother, Kathleen, in a small farmhouse in the cotton fields. This particular harvest season ends up becoming a defining time for Luke and his loving family, as they try to earn their meager annual income while attempting to co-exist with their sometimes hot-headed migrant worker boarders.
