Movie Details

Rather than waste the funds and logistical skill it took to film the movie Bix in Davenport, Iowa, Italian filmmaker Pupi Avati wrote and produced this unassuming English-language melodrama to make full use of their unusual location. Irving left his small-town home a long time ago, after breaking off relations with his father, who was capable of all kinds of wrongdoing. In particular, Irving's old man got a girl pregnant and didn't even begin to do the right thing by her. Now that the old coot is dead and he is the sole heir, Irving has come back to town determined to right past wrongs, and see to it that the girl's family benefits from his legacy. ~ Clarke Fountain, Rovi
