White Lightnin' DVD
The publishers of Vice magazine wrote this fictionalized account of real-life cult figure Jesco White, known as the "Dancing Outlaw." The tale follows White (Edward Hogg), born in the Appalachian Mountains, as he grows up in reform schools and mental wards─battling drug addiction, depression, and poverty in rural West Virginia─only to become wildly popular as a tap/clog dancer, marry an older woman, and indulge in a life of crime. Carrie Fisher co-stars. 92 min. Widescreen; Soundtrack: English.
