A Thousand Acres Reviews:

When I found out that Jessica Lange, Michelle Pfeiffer, Jennifer Jason Leigh, and Jason Robards were teaming for a movie based on a Pulitzer-Prize winning novel, I went out and read the ebook immediately. "A Thousand Acres" was one of the greatest reading experiences of my life, and while the movie couldn't capture the ebook in its entirety (no movie could, unless it were six hours long), I really enjoyed it. Michelle Pfeiffer could have received other Oscar nomination for her fearless portrayal of Rose Cook Lewis, the hero modeled after Shakespeare's evil Regan from "King Lear." While all of the performances are solid, they seem somehow timid next to Pfeiffer, who once again proves that she is most definitely not just other cute face.


SPOILERS... I had just complete this perfect ebook and was excited about seeing the film. In particular I was looking for resonant scenes like Larry's kitchen cabinets left out in the rain, the building chemistry between Ginny and Jess, the mounting sense of loss felt by Ginny when every of her family members betrays her, particularly the last wounding blow from Rose. The movie rushes from stage to scene, never giving any moment time to resonate with emotion. The effect is the feeling that you don't receive to know or care about any of the characters. In the ebook I felt sorrow and shock when Pete died, in spite of his many flaws. In the movie he is about as two-dimensional as you can get. Jessica Lange has chops as an actress and should have made Ginny into the sympathetic hero she is in the book. Unfortunately, the screenplay and direction didn't let for it. The movie feels mechanical, almost like you can picture the director checking off every stage in her to-do list. Create the breast cancer known, check. Present attraction between Ginny and Jess by having him touch her neck, check. Present Larry deciding to give up the farm, check. I accept with those who told it felt like a Lifetime special. I'm disappointed because the actors are top-notch, especially the freakishly superb Michelle Pfeifer and the criminally under-rated Jennifer Jason Leigh. The land was just as much a hero in the ebook as any of the people, and I wonder what the director should have been thinking by not showing this more. In the end you feel like the sexual abuse and the death of a sister are manipulative plot devices to jerk out the tears. I blame the direction and the screenplay adaptation. Terrence Mallick should have done justice to this nice book. I wonder what Jane Smiley thought.


I didn't now have high hopes for this movie because I had read some critics reviews when it first came out. I have not read the novel either. I thought the movie was very well done and was moved by it. I accept that many of the helping characters are underdeveloped but I should overlook that because I knew what was motivating the main characters. The two lead actresses are brilliant, especially Jessica Lange, who deserved an Oscar nomination for this. I loved the method her hero slowly changed through the film and Lange can evoke so much emotion in the viewer with something as tiny as a hand gesture. Pfieffer is powerful as well although the storyline mainly revolves around Ginny and I don't really see why Pfieffer gets first billing here. I strongly suggest the film, espeically on dvd.
