Movie Details

Oscar-winning director Jonathan Demme focuses on the life of one spunky woman as she attempts to get her house rebuilt after the flooding of New Orleans during Hurricane Katrina. Shot over the course of years, Demme introduces us to Parker's daughter and son, and focuses on her attempts to get her local church reopened. All the while, Parker maintains a steadfast optimism in the face of seemingly insurmountable physical and financial troubles. I'm Carolyn Parker: The Good, The Mad, and the Ugly played at the 2011 Toronto International Film Festival. ~ Perry Seibert, Rovi
