Great movie with beautiful landscapes
2 April 1999 | by argos68See all my reviews

This was a great movie with beautiful landscapes. Joe Camp did a tremendous job of capturing the everyday life in a small texas town. although somewhat sad the story was very touching and at times very funny. The acting was very good Kim Hunter and Ernest Borginines roles were terrific. The story begins when Ernest Borgnines character (Hotis) learns of his brother's (Jarvis) sudden illness and attempts to travel to see him. however he is too proud to get a ride from someone else and comes up with a humorous way of getting there. The movie is filled with wonderful shots of the texas countryside and although a sad story it leaves you with a happy ending.
