An emotionally powerful movie
9 November 2020 | by dbegley-748-626325See all my reviews

The beginning of the movie is an excellent use of "show; not tell" as the dialogue is very spare. The settings are fabulous.

The story is really about Diane Lane's character. Her love for her family and what she will do for it.

The Weboy family is really evil and very convincing.

Lane and Costner are exceptional.

The little boy in the movie is now about my age so I really connected with him and his mom.

The third act is action packed.

I loved all the period details including the Red Owl store in Montana.
