The real and mystical worlds converge in this lavish, beautifully photographed Southern gothic drama that explores weighty issues — sex, family bonds, psychic power — gracefully, without a heavy-handed approach. The Batiste clan is a well-heeled, respected family of Southerners who throw fabulous parties and seem to have it all — until Eve (Smollett) walks in on her doctor father (Jackson) and another woman. Eve's discovery unleashes a flood of family secrets and a wave of agony. Eve looks to two witches, one good, her aunt Mozelle (Morgan), and one bad, Elzora (Carroll), to heal the family's wounds. An artfully crafted directorial debut from Lemmons.
