Stop the Pounding Heart Synopsis

A contemplative, lushly filmed exploration of young womanhood and the Deep South from the Cannes Official Selection.


Sara is a young girl raised in a family of goat farmers. Her parents home-school their twelve children, rigorously following the precepts of the Bible. Like her sisters, Sara is taught to be a devout woman, subservient to men while keeping her emotional and physical purity intact until marriage. When Sara meets Colby, a young amateur bull rider, she is thrown into crisis, questioning the only way of life she has ever known.

It's a very simple yet delicate and beautiful film about some lesser-known worlds. The actors, who are probably not even actors, are very raw and expressive. Recommended for an introspective and quiet weekend in. I don't know what else to say but there is a minimum character requirement so I need to type some more. :)
