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

Real People - Real Stories - Wrapped In A Bovine Hug
1 October 2013 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

In a small town in Central California, we meet five young ranch hands living and working on a dairy farm owned and run by the very capable Ms. Liz. I instantly felt as though I lived there with them on the farm

  • so vivid are their faces, emotions and dialogue. I became totally


immersed in the struggles of these very real human beings. I laughed and I cried, I cheered and I ached.

The direction, acting and cinematography are superb. They meld together into something very warm and familiar - with the use of local settings, and that air of closeness so characteristic of rural communities. Everybody knows everybody and then some - which is not always a good thing! The cast is outstanding; the chemistry perfect. It's a wonderful mixture of the happily recognisable and the newly unforgettable.

The music score is wonderful. Each piece and song has been selected and performed so well, that they highlight and complement without encroaching. It is a memorable soundtrack that will have you seeking out the artists afterwards.

I'm Australian, living half a world away from where this film is set and the story nurtured - but this is my town too. These are my people. These are my struggles. And these are my triumphs. There is a good chance that they are yours too. I cannot recommend this film highly enough. You will be richer for seeing it, and it is one that will stay with you for a very long time.
