In 2012, while presenting the Academy Award for Best Actress, Colin Firth made reference (though not by title) to this movie while announcing Michelle Williams' nomination. Firth and Williams both had roles in A Thousand Acres; Williams was sixteen years old at the time (in his introduction, Firth misremembered her age as twelve). See more »
At the beginning of the movie Larry Cook asks why Ty is cultivating the corn. A good question since the corn is chest high and cultivating it without killing it would be impossible. See more »

I was really looking forward for this picture since i heard that Michelle Pfeiffer and Jessica Lange would star together. But when i eventually went to see it i must say i was a bit disappointed. I don't say that the movie was bad ,but the fact that i expected much more from it , make me regard it an average movie. The direction was very poor and the editing unacceptable. The adaption seemed to lack in many ways and Jennifer Jason Leigh was unbearable. But seeing Pfeiffer ang Lange together on screen made me forget everything. These two great actresses proved for once more their talent. When you see them together on screen you forget all the disadvantages the movie has and there's nowhere else you want to be. They both deserved Oscar nominations and Lange probably the award too. Jason Robards though not as good as in some of his previous roles was great too.
