A favorite film of mine; the stark black-and-white imagery calls to mind the works of Walker Evans and Dorothea Lange, and Addie Pray gives Scout Finch a run for the money in the category of Greatest Gruff Little Tomboy of the Great Depression. In these hot, dusty last days of summer, its aesthetic is everything I want.
Perhaps one of the best parts is the soundtrack!
Have a listen, and then scroll down for some pictures.

I'd guess most of you have seen this classic before, but on the off chance you haven't, please do. It's on Netflix Instant Watch now, as a matter of fact. It's a little sappy, sure, but it's awfully endearing and a wonderful evocation of the Dust Bowl-era American Midwest.
