Frank Hoyt Taylor plays outsider artist David Wark

Junebug on IMDB

When newlywed Madeleine (Embeth Davidtz), a British art dealer, travels from Chicago to North Carolina to pursue a local, self-taught painter (Frank Hoyt Taylor) for her outsider art gallery she takes the opportunity to meet her husband George's (Alessandro Nivola) family, who live close by.

There's his flinty, judgmental mother Peg (Celia Weston); his reserved, contemplative father Eugene (Scott Wilson); and his sullen, resentful, twenty-ish brother Johnny (Benjamin McKenzie) who, although married, still lives at home, studying for his high school equivalence certificate while working at Replacements, Ltd. as an order processor.

Madeline and George stay in the baby's nursery and she becomes friends with Johnny's pregnant young wife Ashley (Amy Adams), a very sweet and friendly, if somewhat naive and talkative girl. The family take Madeline to a church service and she attends Ashley's baby shower. The artist she is trying to sign wavers over signing with her gallery, but eventually agrees.

Ashley goes in to labor, but the baby boy is stillborn. She tells George she was going to name it "Junebug". George and Madeline leave to go back to Chicago.
