Storyline

An ill-tempered Canadian farmer Caleb Gare, who tyrannically treats his family like slaves, forcing them to work sunup to sundown and live in dire poverty so he can selfishly fulfill his dream to grab up all the land surrounding his farm.The only person who might have been able to stand up to Caleb was his long-suffering wife Jude, who has long since been cowed into quiet desperation lest her children bear the brunt of her husband's cruelty.But the reign of Caleb Gare is soon to end ignominiously -- that is, if Linda Archer, the attractive new schoolteacher in town, has anything to say about it.

Pretty good, pretty dark
20 August 2002 | by my_angelSee all my reviews

This movie was okay. The guy who plays Caleb was portrayed perfectly...you just hated him. Wow, the teacher was beautiful! I was mad at the mom, she was a pretty bad mother to never stand up for her kids. My sister says it didn't follow the book too well, but, never reading it, I thought it was good. It was dark without being scary. Pretty unique. Good use of lighting and music. Great acting by all. I was more interested in Jade and Aaron and Lind and Jordan than the whole plot though. Overall I'd give it a 6, cause it's a really good Canadian movie.
