"Upon hearing of her mother's death, jaded teenage loner Purslane Hominy Will returns to New Orleans for the first time in years, ready to reclaim her childhood home. Expecting to find her late mother's house abandoned, Pursy is shocked to discover that it is inhabited by two of her mother's friends: Bobby Long, a former literature professor, and his young protégé, Lawson Pines. These broken men, whose lives took a wrong turn years before, have been firmly rooted in the dilapidated house for years, encouraged only by Lawson's faltering ambitions to write a novel about Bobby Long's life. Having no intention of leaving, Pursy, Bobby Long and Lawson are all forced to live together. Yet as time passes, their tenuous, makeshift arrangement unearths a series of buried personal secrets that challenges their bonds, and reveals just how inextricably their lives are intertwined"--Internet movie database summary by Sujit R.

Una canzone per Bobby Long( Visual )

3 editions published in 2005 in English and Italian and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Pursy Will, ragazza dalla vita monotona e ripetitiva, appresa la notizia della morte della madre, abbandona la sua città e il suo fidanzato per tornare a New Orleans, Louisiana, luogo in cui è nata e nel quale ha trascorso l'infanzia in compagnia della sola madre. Pur avendo la ferma intenzione di sistemarsi nella casa materna, Pursy, giunta sul posto, scopre che nell'abitazione dimorano due singolari figure che paiono vivere un'esistenza marginale. Uno è Bobby Long, una volta brillante insegnante di letteratura, ora stravagante personaggio perso dietro seri problemi di alcolismo; l'altro è Lawson Pines, un tempo promettente allievo di Bobby Long, ora aspirante scrittore impegnato nell'accurata stesura di una fedele biografia dell'insegnante. Sdegnata, Purcy ingiunge ai due personaggi di lasciare subito la casa, ma essi, accampando diritti non verificabili, non hanno nessuna intenzione di trasferirsi altrove. Il risultato è una insolita convivenza tra personalità differenti e spesso accesamente contrastanti. Nonostante i momenti alterni, l'alternarsi di episodi di acuta crisi e di situazioni di malinconico lirismo, Pursy, Bobby Long e il giovane Lawson cominciano a conoscersi meglio e, pur con tutti i limiti del caso, iniziano a delinearsi come un singolare nucleo familiare, che progressivamente prende il posto dell'unione forzata tra tre personaggi costretti a convivere. La conoscenza progressiva, inoltre, porta Pursy a capire che Bobby Long in realtà è il suo vero padre mai conosciuto in precedenza, l'uomo che aveva amato la madre ormai morta Ma anche questo breve attimo di felice consapevolezza è destinato a concludersi, dal momento che lo stato di prostrazione fisica a cui Bobby Long si era condannato accompagnerà l'uomo alla tomba soltanto due anni dopo
