Le Anne of Tinsel And Tine70 - You know the part of Gone with the Wind, near the end of the war right before Scarlett's famous "As God is my witness" speech, when her sisters don't want to help farm potatoes and their father is out of his head and Scarlett has to defend Tara against drifters and deserters. Well, that's similar to The Keeping Room, only Augusta and Louise don't even have a daft father to turn to, all they have is one faithful slave who cooks up a pot full of the most non-filling, tasteless looking carrot and potato soup I've ever seen. Not that it's Mad's fault, she doesn't have much to work with and neither does this film.
