Ahead of its time in attitudes towards unmarried mothers, exciting, too!
25 December 1999 | by (Springfield, MA) – See all my reviews

Interesting character studies of a Maine farm family and the young woman they take in without knowing her background. The villian of the piece is from the upper classes, although not without some redeeming characteristics. The movie's climax is set on ice flows on a raging river and had me totally caught up in the action (felt pretty cold, too!) A good chance to see Henry Fonda before he had fully settled into his familiar persona.
