Excellent acting increases the pleasure of a banal telling of a true to life story.
7 November 1998 | by (Clarendon Hills, IL) – See all my reviews

An unknown, but competent cast of actors, bring a special appeal to this rather run-of-the-mill allegedly true story of an Englishwoman who moves to South Africa in 1906. She quickly becomes disillusioned by the way in which blacks are treated and cheated by the white rulers, and is well ahead of her time by refusing to take her place as a nonentity in the hierarchy of the de facto white aristocracy farmer class. Her naive orientation toward fairness upsets the status quo, and creates problems for her and for those she cares about. Never a truly inspired film, it is engrossing nevertheless.
