Here is a Motion Picture You May Not Dare To See And That You Do Not Dare To Miss. It has been magnificently made from James Agee's almost unbearably beautiful Pulitzer Prize novel and from the Pulitzer Prize play made from that novel. It is the story of the Jay Follet family. It is a story of all the kinds of love there are... the love between father and son, mother and child, male and female...the love of any human being for the place he grew up in and for the people he grew up to...It is a motion picture that will follow you home and stay with you all the rest of your days.

Set in the turn of the century, this is a wonderful period piece. Micheal Kearney as Rufus, the couples little boy is sweet and realistic. His father, Jay Follet played by Robert Preston is a top- notch, Oscar caliber performance. His interaction and love for his family is the most realistic that I have ever seen in a movie. Jean Simmons is great, too, her character is heartbreaking and moving. If you get a chance to see this, do it. I don't want to give away the story, but the tragedy she has to deal with will make you think about your loved ones and what it would be like if they were taken away suddenly. A real tear-jerker but a beautiful film.
