A refreshing life-filled change of pace from action flicks.
18 October 2018 | by learningbynatureSee all my reviews

To be honest- I'm not much of a movie goer, nor a movie critic. This film however broke the mold of todays action packed overly glamorous films. There's something for everyone in The Year of the Farmer- whether you're a city slicker or mucking stalls. It's less about farming and more about the finer nuances, discomforts and celebrations of life we will all have our turn with. Leave time for sharing a beverage and conversation after viewing. It's truly a film worth enjoying and sharing.
