The giving of a life to Art
8 May 2001 | by (Statesboro, Georgia) – See all my reviews

Since I like Willa Cather's writings very much, I was very pleased with this treatment of a portion of the novel. Of course I felt I already knew the main characters: Thea Kronberg, Dr. Archie, Spanish Johnny, etc. The film captured the story of Thea, a Swedish farm girl living in Colorado, who aspires to be a concert pianist but finds her talent really lies in singing. It is said that Willa Cather saw this story as a parallel to her own attempts to achieve success, and how this process finally robbed her of a coventionally normal life. If you like this film, you will love the book.
