another movie portraying good family values

Author: ging from Oregon
26 February 1999

Here is an excellent "farm family" movie centered around the life & ideas of a 10 yr. old girl. She learns the values of her parents who believe in caring for the land & not destroying it with some of the more modern farming methods. Another man who enters her life becomes very important to her. A surprise ending also gives an element of suspense to this great heart-warming film.

Great Movie: The Whole Family Will Love.

Author: Willard Hall from Hindman KY

*** This review may contain spoilers ***

A Place To Grow Is A Great Family Movie. I purchased this movie on DVD at Wal-Mart for only $1.00 from Digiview Production. It's a story about a country music star Matt Walker who comes home to take care of his brother's farm after his brother dies in an accident. He then learns that maybe his brother's death was no accident that someone might have killed him, Matt also finds out other mysteries about a 10 year old girl name Laura who becomes close to him, and falls in love with her mom which was his girlfriend years ago. This movie has a wonderful cast, Wilford Brimley plays the cop. Nikki Dunaway plays Laura Shuler the little girl who does a wonderful job in the movie, Tracy Kristofferson who is the daughter of country music star Kris Kristofferson plays Cheryl Shuler, Country music star Gary Morris who plays the lead as Matt Walker.

A Place To Grow also has other country music stars in it, Steve Warner, Juice Newton, John Hornsby, The Late Great Boxcar Willie. Featuring Music by Marty Raybon, Matt King, Gary Morris, And Many More. Once you see this movie, you'll love it and never forget it. It is so good.

Someone gave me this movie, it has different angles, one is the struggle between the heart (feelings) and mind (doing the right thing)Some things never change in the heart. Interesting movie.

I liked it. A young girl married to an older man who seems to have a normal life until the ex-lover shows up after a decade, then the wife who has been married for 10 years to the older husband because she had no choice, wants to fly away leaving everything after the lover insisted her over and over to go away with him. And when she had made her mind, the lover changed his mind by taking the right decision of leaving the past in the past and move on.

Good to watch it, you may discover that you've gone through some of those moments when you had to listen your mind instead of your heart. The classic circle of life for some.

A Place to Sacrifice Two Hours of Your Life You Will Never Get Back

Author: soundtracklover1 from United States
12 December 2013

"A Place to Grow" is a hokey, woefully stereotypical representation of the American Midwest, brought to us by the surprisingly racist and antisemitic writer, producer, and director Merlin Miller, who also happened to be 2012's presidential nominee for the American Third Position Party.

All politics aside though, the movie is a clichéd bit of Midwest feel-good melodrama, featuring the "talents" of singers Gary Morris and the late Boxcar Willie in perhaps what should remain their only acting roles. Though the cover proudly boasts a performance by Wilford Brimley (indeed, one of the few palatable aspects of the film), he's given very little screen time to do anything with his role—and even less in the script.

However, if one truly good thing can be said about this mostly unfortunate production, it is a fine young performance by Nikki Dunaway as Laura Shuler in her only known screen credit. Shuler not only carries her own weight, she even occasionally picks up the slack when her adult counterparts fall flat.

That aside, even hardcore Midwest, or more specifically Southwest Missouri, loyalists should best avoid this turkey. Most of it isn't worth the celluloid.
