Based on the short story by beloved writer Eudora Welty, The Robber Bridegroom is the Southern-fried Robin Hood tale of Jamie Lockhar, a dangerous, handsome, backwoods rogue who’s a gentleman by day and bandit by night. When he falls for the beautiful daughter of a wealthy planter, his world and code of ethics are turned upside down.
