A pretty miserable life....
31 May 2017 | by MartinHaferSee all my reviews

"Two Alone" is not an especially enjoyable movie to watch, though it wasn't intended to be. In modern terms, it's a story about human trafficking. A horrid and vicious couple take in an orphan. But Mazie (Jean Parker) is never treated like a member of the family but as a slave...working almost constantly on the family's farm. Later, Adam (Tom Brown) runs away from a nearby reform school and when the man of the house finds him, he promises not to turn him in...and soon makes him a slave as well. Adam and Mazie have a pretty awful life and the only thing that keeps them going is their love for each other. Eventually, the pair run away after Mazie is practically raped...and during this time Mazie's long-lost father arrives looking for her! And, when the pair are eventually caught, they're returned to the farm and no one tells them about Mazie's father. What's next?

The acting by everyone is very nice and the depressing story is very strong and well written. And, fortunately, it does end well...and is worth seeing.
