Black Snake Moan A redemptive tale of nymphos, bondage and skimpy pants
Plot When smalltown tramp (and former sexual abuse victim) Rae (Ricci) is raped and left for dead,
God-fearing, divorced blues musician Lazarus (Jackson) takes her into his home, shackles her to the radiator and tries to make her change her nympho ways.
