A must-see movie for farmers, but you'll think it's bad.
6 April 2005 | by lightninboySee all my reviews

There was a Midwestern farm crisis from 1984 to 1987 or so, and Nikita Kruschev did come to Iowa to the Garst farm at Coon Rapids as I recall. There are some good things about this movie, but I think the bad things outweigh them. It is one of the few movies about modern agriculture. The incident at the trailer house makes Gere's character look like a real loser. The incident with the ox pull makes you wonder if there was cruelty to an animal. You don't usually see an armed guard at a bank in Iowa. Maybe the writer watched too many Andy Griffith shows. I've never seen a grain truck back into an elevator and I've never seen a combine unloading corn into a truck on the go in real life. All in all, I can't help but think that someone in the state of Iowa could have written a better movie.
