I stumbled across this film on the satellite grid tonight, and was interested because I grew up reading the Laura Ingalls Wilder books. What a pity that the writer of this script never so much as lifted the cover of one of Wilder's books. There is far more factual information to be found on the Wikipedia site than in this film. I watched through to the end, but I made it only by pretending that this was not a film about Laura Ingalls Wilder.
The little girl who portrayed young Rose gave a good performance, but everyone else left me cold. I heartily recommend that LIW fans avoid this film.
