Storyline

Maud Sage has a secret wish when she returns to the place of her childhood. Her dream is to breed thoroughbreds of world class but it does not go so easily fulfilled. The snobbish society of bluegrass and her unscrupulous neighbor Lowell Shipleigh spares no meanness in order to destroy her. Against the vicious intrigues only the useful farm managers Dancy Cutler stands beside her, whose love she misconceived first. The revenge is bitterly when she falls for the persuasiveness of the equally rich as mysterious Irishman Michael Fitzgerald.

A very good tv movie !
3 June 2000 | by (Bordeaux, France) – See all my reviews

"Bluegrass" is probably one of my favourite tv movie : romance, suspense, good guys and bad guys ... the recipe of "Dallas". Cheryl Ladd (Maud Adams)is playing a convincing horse breeder who must fight against her evil neighbour, played by Wayne Rogers, the very hateful Lowell Cheeplea. Brian Kerwin, playing Dancy Cutler, is the nicest character of the entire show : an ex-alcoholic who tries to fight his demons and win the heart of the beautifull Maud. "Bluegrass" is a tv movie for all the saga lovers, it's like ... you know, the sun during a sunday afternoon ...
