Movie Haiku:Story told here is so important we wanted this film to be perfect; it isnít but itís damn good! Superlative cast provides an intimate depiction of a small community under the stress of fundamental change, but the courtroom scenes, when Josie (Theron) finally sues for sexual harassment, are too canned.
