a tale of estranged families
3 February 2009 | by didi-5See all my reviews

In 25 minutes, this TV drama presents the story of a feud between father and daughter when she leaves to marry the wrong person. Things come to a head over a hot summer when the father decides to withhold water from the daughter's land.

'Dan Marshall's Brat' puts Trudy Marshall, the grand-daughter, centre stage, and of course, allows her to bond with her estranged grandpa and save the day.

It's a routine TV story but production values are fairly high and it is reasonably well-acted, especially by Paul Fix as Barton, the grandpa, and Patty McCormack as Trudy. There's even an errant ranch-hand, a rather elderly 'kid' to add additional interest!
