History, romance, propriety, prejudice and the inescapable pull of emotions.
24 January 1999 | by guernseySee all my reviews

This was a great movie. It worked as an intriguing slice of American history, as a drama of pure, youthful love and as a portrait of two grandparents' affection, pride and protection for their orphaned grandson.

Unlike some "made-for-TV" movies, the breaks for commercials were almost never awkward or noticeable, and production quality was worthy of the big screen. As an unexpected bonus, the rolling Nebraska landscape was surprisingly beautiful.

One of my great-grandfathers lived in a sod homestead in western Nebraska in the late 1800s, just like Antonia. I found it compelling to consider the contrasts between her existence in the movie, and my midwestern life in 1999.

"My Antonia" delivers a little heartbreak but lots of hope, and I rate it 9 out of 10 stars!
