I have to admit I was pleasantly surprised by this film. I have seen the critics take a long time to get round to reviewing it, but when they did they all failed to mention the fact that it's a love story. I had the impression that the critics had it all wrong. They should have seen the book first, so that they could judge the film on its own merits. In fact, I'd argue that this film has a better script than the book, which is to say that it's the most faithful adaptation. The film opens in a remote farmhouse. It's the 1930s, and the elderly Henry (a fine Richard Gere) has a blind wife (a fine Jessica Lange). He's a hardworking man who believes in God, and his wife is a weak and hysterical woman. The film's tone is one of depression, of family breakdown. The two children have been separated from their mother for so long that they forget their differences and are now just one-dimensional caricatures. The daughter, a mute girl, spends her days in a mental asylum. The two sons are big, strong and good-looking, but they are incapable of expressing themselves. And the daughter's mother is a heartless, unsympathetic woman. This is a very sad story, and the film shows the human condition at its worst. But the film is a love story, and the characters are very good. Gere is excellent as the father, Lange is excellent as the mother, and the two children are good actors, especially the mute daughter, who is very good at acting. I have to say that the film is a bit too long, but it's very entertaining, and the story is more interesting than the book. I think the film deserves a higher rating than the critics gave it. It's a very good film. Not perfect, but definitely better than the average Hollywood movie.
