Jane Hammond: [whispering a bedtime story] Callie and Decca were two sisters. They were on a boat. They're in the water, and Callie said to Decca, "Decca, will you tell me the story about the upside-down tree again please?" And Decca said, "Once upon a time, there was an upside-down tree.

The plot and story-line are listed everywhere so no need to repeat. I will add that, it is painfully slow, no character building, and way too many flashbacks, so many that it is close to making it difficult to follow along.

The thing is about these period pieces is those making them, or whoever they use as consultants have no idea about the way things really were.

As someone that has spent years researching ancestry, which means pouring over not only photos, but land descriptions, newspapers, correspondence and so on. You would think with the money spent on these films, they would hire someone to give it true authenticity. I am always disappointed when I see a film showing beautiful, clean women and healthy chubby cheeked children, with clean homes, lots of natural lighting, glass windows and unstained, wrinkle free clothing, or starched high collars on men's shirts. Or even the towns that have clean plowed dirt streets, even without trash or waste anywhere.

The reality is the men and women were strong people, but living in extremely remote areas such as this setting they would be very thin and not what most in this day and age would call beautiful. They didn't have flawless skin, shaped brows and contouring make-up in the attempt to make it look like no make-up. The children were always dirty and the clothes worn and stained (unless they were a very wealthy family).

I gave it three starts simply for the work of the cinematography. Good angles, nice lenses/filters.
