A Good Baby, the film

A good baby Raymond Toker lives in Appalachian mountains of North Carolina. The family home has burned down and apparently his parents and a younger sister have died in the fire. An older brother, LeRoy, is doing time in state prison, and Raymond, a loner, is living in the root cellar next to the burned down house.

One day while out hunting, Raymond finds a baby abandoned, and tries to get several women to take it and raise it but they all refuse so Raymond keeps the baby himself.

This is an odd movie, but somewhat believable, and it casts a man in the role of being a nuturant, and protective parent which is quite different from how men are portrayed in our contemporary society.

I enjoyed this movie and it is quite different from the commercial schlock in the theaters this summer.
