A father disowns his daughter, Annie, because of her choice to marry a neighboring woodsman. The marriage is strong and bears four children, but Annie is determined to also include her father in her family.
This movie is somewhat hidden from a lot of people. To my knowledge, the film was made in 1999 but not released until quit a few years later (thought I'm not sure of it). Anyways, this is a good movie, not the best but good. The three main stars of the film really connect well, and the romance is handled in a good and cautious way. I also think the film shows the very real prejudices and racism that I"m sure still goes on in the world (though I can honestly recommend quit a few movies on that subject that are better, but its still well done).. Good movie, not necessarily for the romance, but for the quality as a whole. I recommend to anyone who comes by it. I rate it 7/10 Rated R-language and some violence (also has some sensuality)
