Junebug by Phil Morrison( visu )
4 editions published between 2005 and 2006 in English and held by 1,185 libraries worldwide
Junebug is a deceptively simple, deeply resonant story about the inherent loneliness of family, embracing the texture of a world the movies rarely visit. Three years have passed since George has been home, and he is bringing his bride, Chicago art dealer Madeleine. His family--father Eugene, mother Peg, brother Johnny and sister-in-law Ashley--await them with a mixture of excitement, anxiety, and dread. Junebug sounds a paean to yearning, alienation, and endless hope, in the face of the enormous distances that can divide two people, separated by two ways of life

4 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 1,178 libraries worldwide
This is the third in a series of films about a boy and his dog, his family, and the mean man next door who isn't so mean, if you get to know him. When an abandoned car is discovered and the driver is reported missing, people immediately begin to suspect that Judd had something to do with it. Later, when the missing driver turns up dead--he was last seen arguing with Judd in a bar--most of the townspeople are ready to convict Judd on general principles. Marty believes in him, and his dad backs him up: Judd is a troubled man, but certainly not a killer. Can a bad person truly change, as long as people give him a chance to do so?
