The Rising Place


The Rising Place Review

If you're a fan of movies like The Notebook or Divine Secrets of the Ya-Ya Sisterhood, The Rising Place is for you. Despite the vaguely naughty name, this is actually an earnest and heartfelt period piece set in the Old South, involving pregnancy out of wedlock, civil rights, and lots and lots of headstrong women. Laurel Holloman -- a cross between Mary Louise Parker and Mary McCormack -- owns this show the best she can, but my if it isn't staid and predictable.
