Country is a sobering look into how one family deals with the financial failure of a farm.
5 November 1998 | by (Brea, Ca. USA) – See all my reviews

A sensitive performance by Jessica Lange as a strong wife and mother who fights to save the family farm. A strong cast of fine actors includes: Sam Shepard, Wilford Brimley, Matt Clark and Therese Graham. This film is realistic,especially for the time in which it was released, 1984. You feel the sense of desperation thanks to outstanding performances.
