Watched "Blessing" with my husband a few weeks ago. This film has a terrific feel and incredible honesty! It shows us characters at their worst and at their best without maneuvering us into judging them. These are real people -- not monsters or saints, just human beings.
Set on a dairy farm in Wisconsin, the film's story focuses on Randi, a 20-something daughter who is struggling to find a way to leave the famlily farm. She's stopped by her devotion to Clovis, her younger brother, as well as her jealous mother and an over-worked father. When Randi meets Lyle, the local milk truck driver and amateur astrologer, she finally decides to leave, a decision that tears the family apart.
As it's a film about small town America and the question of freedom vs. family that reminded me of "What's Eating Gilbert Grape" -- but this film is a less quirky, more true-to-life portrayal.
"Blessing" is hopeful, real and leaves you with the sense that you've learned something about familes, life, and personal triumph.
