Everett Silas gets by working in his parents’ dry-cleaning business, but can barely relate to lawyer brother Monte Easter—who nonetheless asks him to be best man at his upscale wedding, cueing a commitment just looking to get broken. After prematurely screening the film at festivals in 1983, reputedly at the behest of a financier, Burnett completed the film in 2007 with a cut that was approximately 35 minutes shorter.
