Description: It's the summer of 1965, and a backwoods Alabama boy named Peejoe -short for Peter Joseph-is about to get a fast education in grown-up matters like freedom. The catalyst will be the most unlikely of sources-his glamorous, eccentric Aunt Lucille, who escapes from the clutches of her abusive husband and takes off for Hollywood to pursue her dreams of TV stardom. CRAZY IN ALABAMA is a poignant yet stirring comedy-drama that intertwines two unique stories against the backdrop of Los Angeles and the Deep South.
