The Downside Of Small-town Life
4 February 2005 | by (NY, NY) – See all my reviews

Despite its inane title, this is a strong little movie. Pat O'Brien is excellent, as are the supporting players.

I am a sucker for movies about the joys of country living. Two that come to mind are "Mother Carry's Chickens" and "The Get-Away." Yet, there is a reason I live in Manhattan and not in a small town, which I did as a teenager.

This is the story of a sophisticated woman who tries to be liked by the townspeople where well loved doctor O'Brien practices. It is an uphill battle. The woman are envious and catty. The men are staunchly unwelcoming.

She is drawn to the son of a prosperous farmer, the artistic Erik (Ross Alexander.) Though her interest is only in helping him attain his artistic goals, tongues start wagging. (This despite the fact that neither seems interested in members of the opposite sex, he most noticeably.) Even Doc O'Brien doubts her fidelity and she leaves, Alexander having been rather quickly disposed of in a car accident of which she is unaware.

O'Brien is enormously likable here; so coming back to him does make sense. Coming back to this horrid little town, which she does at the very end, however, does not. There is no reason to think she will be made to feel any more welcome than before her departure.
