I really loved this movie. I watched it from Netflix. It is striking in its simplicity. It’s a story being told to a grandson. The grandmother’s memory of coming to Minnesota from Germany as a mail-order bride. We see everything through her eyes, vivid and real.
The characters are richly written and easy to fall in love with. It’s beautiful and not sappy or corny. A real love story.Based on the short story, “A Gravestone Made of Wheat” by Will Weaver. Won the Audience Award for Best Narrative Feature at the Florida Film Festival.
