Storyline

An ill-tempered Canadian farmer Caleb Gare, who tyrannically treats his family like slaves, forcing them to work sunup to sundown and live in dire poverty so he can selfishly fulfill his dream to grab up all the land surrounding his farm.The only person who might have been able to stand up to Caleb was his long-suffering wife Jude, who has long since been cowed into quiet desperation lest her children bear the brunt of her husband's cruelty.But the reign of Caleb Gare is soon to end ignominiously -- that is, if Linda Archer, the attractive new schoolteacher in town, has anything to say about it.

A perfect portrayal of tension
8 July 2007 | by deborahannsmithSee all my reviews

I have lived in a house like this one, filled with anger, abuse and tension. This film captures the mood of the house led by an abusive parent brilliantly. Kudos to a fantastic director and cast, and an excellent story. Thank-you for having the courage to tell it. The shots are beautiful, and the acting superb. Thank you Sam Sheppard for playing the role so brilliantly and thank-you to the cast for portraying a world which might not have been familiar to them but is so familiar to many families where the patriarch is the person to be trusted least. Against the fields of wheat, in an isolated world, all characters were afraid to fight. This is what really happens in these situations I am afraid, and this film brilliantly depicts the world of abuse...simply, and with such honestly that one who has lived through this world learns...and is reminded that it was "not OK" at all.
