  • It has been so long since I've seen a Hollywood film with specific political beliefs that a funny thing happened: The movie's anger moved me as much as its story. The story is pretty moving, too.

  • While Lange's performance alone elevates something like Country... There's something a bit stagnant about the melodrama of William D. Witliff's screenplay, which takes a compelling predicament but can't rightly fashion the familial characteristics.

  • Jessica Lange received a well deserved Oscar nomination for this compelling chronicle of farming in the Reagan era.

  • Lange and Shepard are effective as modern farmers under threat.

    Jun 12, 2005 | Rating: 4/5
  • A compelling and important film which presents the anguish, stress and anger of one contemporary farm family faced with foreclosure.

    Okay..some of the films in the eighties don't really go the extra mile. This one falls short a wee bit of being truly good.
