The Locusts Details

FULL SYNOPSIS

A young drifter unexpectedly wanders into a maelstrom of bizarre sex and shameful secrets in this drama. With a mere seven dollars to his name, Clay Hewitt ([[Performer~P225542~Vince Vaughn~vincevaughn]]) happens upon a ranch run by Delilah Potts ([[Performer~P10767~Kate Capshaw~katecapshaw]]), a hard-as-nails widow who inherited a cattle empire from her late husband but needed no advice on how to keep it financially successful. While Delilah has become a success in business, she's had much less luck in love; to satisfy her ravenous sexual appetites, she often calls upon her various ranch hands to spend the night with her -- and they learn that saying no to the boss will only make trouble for them later on. Clay asks Delilah for a job, and she agrees; she also invites him to her bed and is startled when he turns her down. While Clay is cautiously fascinated by Delilah, his heart goes out to Flyboy ([[Performer~P195669~Jeremy Davies~jeremydavies]]), Delilah's disturbed and withdrawn son who appears to need a friend to reach out to. Clay becomes involved with Kitty ([[Performer~P36453~Ashley Judd~ashleyjudd]]), a sweet local girl, and together they try to help Flyboy break out of his shell, only to discover that his problems -- and Delilah's -- run deeper than they ever expected. Also released under the title A Secret Sin, The Locusts marked the feature debut of writer and director [[Performer~P231444~John Patrick Kelley~johnpatrickkelley]]. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi
