Beautifully bleak
31 January 2017 | by jkadmireSee all my reviews

JulietteofOhio • 40 minutes ago Stunning visuals and Sara Canning is a rare talent. As a history major, I was fascinated by the raw country and sheer amount of physical work these women would be required to put in. In the real world, they would both be dead within a year, either from malnutrition, disease, or hypothermia, The father and brothers were reported to have died of typhoid, a water-borne illness, and it would undoubtedly strike the two under-fed, over-worked women. This was a time that required male strength and protection, an asset not valued sufficiently today. In actual fact, the extreme northern plains required a community as even groups of men died on the hostile northern prairies. The only flaws I spotted were the metal artifacts on the dilapidated house and barn. The fixtures, handles, etc., were "antique modern", not the forged iron of the period. Hair and dresses were accurate, as per the post-Civil War era, but the shoes were circa 1900. The setting was bleak, the outlook was bleak, but it was an engrossing film.
