Falls short of the book
8 September 2001 | by (Midwest USA) – See all my reviews

This film is based on the novel, Mrs. Mike, which is based on the real life woman, Kathy O'Fallon Flannigan. While it is an adequate film by itself, it sells the story short. It panders to romance and drama, when the book is quite dramatic in its own right. A Boston teenager is sent to live with her uncle in frontier Canada because of her fragile health. She eventually falls in love with own of the few-if only-young, white males in the region. They marry and depart for the northern wilderness to set up house and home. The rest of the movie is about her struggles and joys of living and travelling in this rugged country. Sadly, the movie ends where the book took off on a whole new, inspiring tangent. We are left with the typical "happy ending". I gave this a 5.
