Storyline

Our story takes place in the fertile, San Joaquin Valley. Fueled by gin and sheer determination, Elizabeth James (Ms. Liz) operates her third generation dairy farm outside the region's domineering co-ops. To help keep the place afloat, she's employed five renegade ranch hands. These boys have put a pin in responsibility and opted to stretch out the party as long as possible. Unfortunately, women, booze, and fisticuffs can only lead to one outcome: trouble. With the dairy farm reporting its third straight deficit year, Ms Liz is attracting some unwanted attention. Delbert Furgeson, the owner of the area's largest co-op, is pushing to buy her out. This only incenses the prideful Ms Liz and starts a volatile feud between the two. Sharing the narrative are the ranch hands. Randel and Rooker Lee are brothers caught in the crossfire of their parents' separation. Leslie Williams and Jackie Remmington are aspiring musicians, trying not to get caught up in their own success. Wade Kitchanski is... Written by Anonymous

The perfect American Movie
30 September 2013 | by (Vancouver B.C. Canada) – See all my reviews

I like movies where you feel like you're walking along with the cast.

Just as the English can do fabulous period movies, the Americans can do equally as well when they pick out small town USA and tell us about the characters and the culture. When they do this AND somehow add fantastic music to the mix then no one does it better. This movie has everything; well structured plot, superb acting and a building of empathy for every role. Even the most minor appearances manage to squeeze out every ounce of emotion, the sheriff in particular is a great performance. Aaron Hill has a young "Jon Voight" quality about him which has me believing that he will be a major star before too long.

The bar scenes are again something that only Americans can do and they take you right in as a customer in this movie. Heck I almost ordered a beer! Poignant, loving, neighbourly; all the qualities you see in rural towns are gracefully exploited in this movie, subtly set against the usual pressures of change and race tensions. This is a first class product and I highly recommend that you go see it.
