southern movies

This week’s #southernchat is Oscar-inspired as we focus on some of the best Southern films & movies of all time. There are so many great movies, from new films to classics, that are set in the South or inspired by Southern events. Not to mention our favorite actors & actresses, landmarks, storylines and memories from these cinema staples.
