Nothing New But Well Executed
29 January 2009 | by (New York City) – See all my reviews

There is nothing much new in this story of poor farmers in Maine: their trials and tribulations, their hopes and dreams and the Polish family that bought the abandoned farm down the road. However, the performances are excellent. Jean Muir is luminous as the hard-working drudge who wants something more without quite understanding what, William Janney is her brother who is working his way through college and Donald Woods is as good in his miscast role as he can be: he is supposed to be Polish and a violinist, but his faking is as mismatched to the music as can be. Good thing that what he really wants to be is a farmer! But despite the excellence of the acting,it's largely repetitious of characters again and again: the kids are tired of the hard work, the father is understanding, the mother is shrill and grasping and so forth. After a while, it's a little too much.

Fans of star watching should keep a sharp eye out: Shirley Temple is listed on the IMDb as having her last uncredited role in this, the same year she became the biggest star at Fox. Interestingly, I was unable to spot her, nor is she listed in the AFI Catalogue as appearing here. If you do see her here, please let me know where.
