Corinna, Corinna (1994)

Before “The Help” was a sweet and sassy little movie about the reality of systemic prejudice that actually radiated warmth. But it was by no means light and fluffy.

The three form an unlikely family, which obviously infuriates the neighbors, without an ounce of antagonism.
