The two sides of the picture are connected dramatically
A poetic picture full of lovely scenes, whose object is to contrast the paths of the life that may be called homely with the more graceful- seeming life of silks and brocades in a beautiful palace. This contrast is subtly developed and the picture makes a very satisfying as well as substantial offering. The plot is simple and the story is kept clear. The two sides of the picture are connected dramatically by bringing one of two sisters from the far away fields to the palace, where she finds how empty and vain its graceful life is. When she returns, quite forlorn, she finds that her younger sister has married the shepherd lad, her former sweetheart, and is happy. Miss Lois Weber plays the ambitious sister; Miss Cleo Ridgely the other sister and Mr. Phillips Smalley the shepherd. The photographs of these poetic scenes are excellent and make a good offering, one that will please everywhere. - The Moving Picture World, September 28, 1912
