Storyline

After the unexpected and early death of the mother of the young Mulligan brothers, Daniel, Jacob and Samuel, they go their seperate ways and consequently learn to deal with life in different ways. But when their father dies, the three brothers must return to their childhood home to settle his will. The brothers then discover much to their surprise, that their father, who they thought was a simple farmer, had a secret, and was actually a very wealthy man. While, with the pragmatic help of their fathers lawyer, trying to come to a unanimous decision about how to handle this revelation, the vastly different personalities of three brothers rise to the surface and consequently into conflict with each other, ultimately leading the brothers down a self destructive path towards their own demise.

I cried a river!
3 April 2002 | by (New York) – See all my reviews

Ok so you might not want to cry a river. But you'll probably still love this flick.

Mulligan Farm is the moving (and often beautiful) story of three brothers in conflict. Although life has taken them in vastly different directions, they need to find a place of agreement in order to settle their father's estate. Hidden motives and well-kept secrets come into play as the story unwinds, revealing underlying struggles and heartaches, some of which we identify with and others which come as a surprise.

Samuel Mulligan is beautifully played by Edward Kassar. His kindhearted simplicity is incredibly touching and gives more than a few tugs on my heartstrings. The other two Mulligan brothers are played by the remarkably talented Joseph De Sane and John De Sane. Believable emotional performances. I look forward eagerly to seeing more in the future. Too bad there isn't a De Sane section in Blockbuster Video. (yet.) I also got a kick out of the slightly twisted ... shall we say "businessman" ... portrayed by Craig Mowry.

Lush imagery sprinkled in among the scenes adds depth and beauty to this film. Flashbacks of the Mulligans' mother are gorgeously rendered and moving. (I feel the tears coming on just talking about it!) I found much to take in and appreciate here: a story which entices you to follow along, moving performances, an interesting and lovely use of imagery ... all wrapped up in a nice little package which is Mulligan Farm.
