Storyline

It's 1918, the height of United States involvement in World War I - Liberty Bonds are sold, German immigrants are suspected as traitors or saboteurs, young men everywhere succumb to the patriotism and propaganda and enlist. In a small Texas town, Horace Robedaux feels the pressure - he doesn't want to leave his young wife Elizabeth and their young child Jenny - but Elizabeth's can't-do-anything-right little brother is constantly talking about the war, and Elizabeth's stern father, who opposed the marriage initially, now has plans to take care of his daughter and the child so Horace can fight for his country. But the influenza epidemic sweeping the town (and the nation) may change everyone's plans. Written by Gary Dickerson <slug@mail.utexas.edu>

Absorbing drama by Horton Foote...
10 March 2001 | by (Evansville, Indiana USA) – See all my reviews

1st watched 3/2/2000 - (Dir-Ken Harrison): Absorbing drama by Horton Foote of a southern family around the time when men were dying in World War I overseas or with the flu back in the states. Well done by everyone with a story that tug's at your heart as you waltz thru this family in a very short part of their lives together.
