I have lived in a house like this one, filled with anger, abuse and tension. This film captures the mood of the house led by an abusive parent brilliantly. Kudos to a fantastic director and cast, and an excellent story. Thank-you for having the courage to tell it. The shots are beautiful, and the acting superb. Thank you Sam Sheppard for playing the role so brilliantly and thank-you to the cast for portraying a world which might not have been familiar to them but is so familiar to many families where the patriarch is the person to be trusted least. Against the fields of wheat, in an isolated world, all characters were afraid to fight. This is what really happens in these situations I am afraid, and this film brilliantly depicts the world of abuse...simply, and with such honestly that one who has lived through this world learns...and is reminded that it was "not OK" at all.
