20/03/13 Eve's Bayou (1997)

Ubiquitous L. Jackson plays Dr Batiste. He has a hat and some daughters. He lives in a small town in Louisiana. He enjoys dipping his thermometer into the women of the town behind his wife's back. Eventually it all goes a bit bollock shaped. The few remaining women in the town who aren't shagging Jackson appear to be psychic.

It's actually pretty good, it benefits from the twin novelties of being a 'black' film set in the south in the past that isn't about race, and having a child actor who we didn't continuously want to drop-kick over a shed.
