Quotes

Jacob Witting: I love you, Sarah. There are some things that can't be written... in a letter. I'm not good with words.
Sarah Witting: You're fine with words. I never thought you'd come. I dreamed about it at night when the sea sounded like wind through the grasses. I thought about it at night when Caleb had bad dreams. I saw your face everywhere, Jacob, everywhere. I'd look at the sea and see your face there, and in the sky.

Playing for Rain
28 August 2011 | by (Earth) – See all my reviews

Two years after "Sarah, Plain and Tall" (1991), you will recall Maine mail-order bride Glenn Close (as Sarah) and Kansas prairie farmer Christopher Walken (as Jacob Witting) are a real, passionate and loving couple. And she has really and sincerely been accepted as mother to his children, Lexi Randall (as Anna) and Christopher Bell (as Caleb). Herein, their happiness is threatened by a drought. Reaching some emotional highs in her characterization, Ms. Close wants to fight the heat and have a baby. There is nothing seriously wrong with this "man versus nature" TV-movie sequel, but it does play like a stretched-out subplot to the original story. Eventually, it gets a little grating. The drought never stood a chance against this family, and you know it.

***** Skylark (2/7/93) Joseph Sargent ~ Glenn Close, Christopher Walken, Christopher Bell, Lexi Randall
