Storyline

"The Farmer's Wife" takes us deep inside the world of Juanita and Darrel Buschkoetter, a remarkable young Nebraska farm couple, to tell a compelling love story. It follows the Buschkoetters over three years as they face seemingly insurmountable economic hardship, only to confront an even greater challenge: repairing their damaged marriage. What emerges is an epic story of faith, perseverance, and triumph, and an indelible portrait of a real American family's struggle to hold onto their dreams, and to each other. Written by Anonymous

Simply Heartbreaking
2 March 2001 | by (Los Angeles) – See all my reviews

I suppose I could try and talk about what makes this a great documentary, but if you know documentary you'll soon enough recognize this film's greatness. I suppose I could talk about how this film makes so-called reality shows like "Survivor" and their ilk look like walks in the park, but I think we can all recognize those shows as sheer silliness.

Simply put this film instantly involves you emotionally. If you're not prepared to ache and care for the success of this couple and their farm then do not watch this. It is so rare for narrative, fictional film-makers to hold my interest for 90 minutes, but this film, in spite of its length really sucked me in.

I recommend it heartily. If you read this review, please see this film, rate it and get it ranked with the other documentaries. It deserves to be there, if only more people will see it. Trust me, you won't regret it.
