Movie Monday: Sweet Land


I really loved this movie. I watched it from Netflix. It is striking in its simplicity. 20130204-091627.jpgIt’s a story being told to a grandson. The grandmother’s memory of coming to Minnesota from Germany as a mail-order bride. 20130204-091633.jpgWe see everything through her eyes, vivid and real.
20130204-091639.jpgThe characters are richly written and easy to fall in love with. 20130204-091644.jpgIt’s beautiful and not sappy or corny. A real love story.20130204-091650.jpgBased on the short story, “A Gravestone Made of Wheat” by Will Weaver. 20130204-091656.jpgWon the Audience Award for Best Narrative Feature at the Florida Film Festival.20130204-091702.jpg20130204-091707.jpg20130204-091712.jpg20130204-091717.jpg20130204-091722.jpg20130204-091727.jpg
