This was a terrible movie. Two seasoned actors like this and I expected so much more. Costner barely said 5 lines in the whole thing. Horrible ending too. Don't waste your time.

We found it very slow and depressing at the beginning and when we saw the direction in which it was going, decided we
It wasn’t for us.

Filmed in my home Province of Alberta, Canada around Fort Macleod, Didsbury, and Drumheller with the Weboy farmhouse set near High River, I enjoyed this movie for the location shots as much as the story and the acting. Diane Lane is excellent and Kevin Costner is very good with Lesley Manville doing a great job as the nasty Weboy matriarch. Booboo Stewart does an adequate job but I would have liked to see a local in this part, especially considering the number of talented First Nations Albertans in this area. A true Western in the sense of good guys vs bad guys.

This film is set in the 1960's. The sets, cars, costumes are fantastic, as well as the scenery. A man who so dearly loves his wife strives to give her everything. Kevin Costner and Diane Lane are fantastic and their relationship is tight. The supporting cast gives these two leads a run for their money. The characters are full and all very believable. Set in the Mid West. People related to each other differently in the 60's; the whole culture was different. When you travelled through these ares, you were on your own.There was no cell phone, no Twitter or Facebook. One could actually live out in the 'boonies', like the Indian in the film, and be undisturbed and be peaceful. Not only can you see character introspection, you can feel it.
Probably a little slow for most people's taste, but extremely well done.

I saw this one and "Promising Young Woman" close together. I liked "Promising Young Woman" because the agitator had the commitment to make the sacrifice necessary. In this case, the payment is made by others. In addition, while there is an apparent conclusion, it isn't complete, and a little thought indicates that the final outcome is likely to be extremely unsatisfying.

Not bad... Starts out slow Bulids to a climax . 3 1/2 stars - It's Free so I can recommend

A darn good adaptation of the book, which I liked so much! Diane Lane is perfect as Margaret Blackledge, the grandmother hell bent on getting her grandson back! When I read the book, I pictured Sam Elliot as George Blackledge, but Kevin Costner did a good job as George. And I think the little boy did a good job acting too! My only negative comment of the film, is that I liked the ending of the book much more. But this is a good film to enjoy!

Most enjoyable. Watch out for the seniors! Don't mess with family! I enjoyed this one a lot.

Sounds like your daddy. Thumping his Bible.
-Wasn't just Bibles he thumped.
... I would've told him to do exactly what he's done. "Marry yourself a widow, Donnie. You'll be getting a grateful woman."
I don't need reminding. I know what I've lost.
-Sometimes that's all life is, Margaret. The list of what we've lost.
The government agents came into the house when I was eight. They took me and put me in their truck. You know, I thought I did something wrong and that my mother didn't want me anymore. But then I could see she was crying. All the mothers were.
-You were eight?
They cut my hair off. And washed me in kerosene. And beat me. To kill the Indian inside. I guess they did. So when I came home, I couldn't understand my grandmother's words anymore.
Isn't that what you've always told me? Over and over. That I don't know when it's time to call it quits.
-And I'll be the one gets the job of picking up those pieces, huh?

First time I held him, he arranged himself just right in my arms and snug to me. And light as can be, like feathers...

The Weboys:

My people originally came from Illinois. Filed a homestead claim north of Gladstone before there was a Gladstone. I'm one of eight. Lost an older sister to pneumonia. My brother Carl drowned in a neighbor's cistern. Another fell off a truck, lived in a wheelchair for the rest of his days. My aunt Ruth got caught in a whiteout, froze and died right where she stood, not 30 feet from that back door. Hard life. Not for everyone. My other brothers and sister lit out, soon as they could. Never looked back.

I stayed. When I first met Henry Weboy, he couldn't stop talking about heading for Florida. I figure I had more than a little to do with his decision to stay. Now he's buried in the same cemetery as my folks and his. Yeah. And my boys are fourth-generation Weboys, born and living on North Dakota soil.
