About Eve's Bayou
A young girl learns some difficult lessons about truth, love, and fidelity in this critically-acclaimed Southern drama.
In early Sixties Louisiana, the charismatic Dr. Louis Batiste (Samuel L. Jackson) seems to have it all: the respect of his community, a beautiful wife (Lynn Whitfield) and 10-year-old daughter Eve (Jurnee Smollett). However, in the course of a party at their house, the doctor's roving eye gets the better of him and the ensuing illicit liaison triggers a series of tragic events. Eve's innocence is shattered as dark family secrets are uncovered and the power of Creole voodoo on the region is revealed.
