My wife and I saw the movie today. This is a nice, gentle story. Reminds me of The Straight Story and The Grey Fox. Written well; could have been hokey but is not. Casted and well acted.

As a Minnesotan, this film captures more of the state than any previous films. I know these people and their environment.

If you are looking for action,, Farmer will disappoint. If you like stories, this is a pleaser.
