A Film by Jay Craven
Based on a book by Howard Frank Mosher

Starring Rip Torn, Michael J. Fox and Treat Williams

Based on Howard Frank Mosher’s regional novella, the film is set in 1927 and centers on two unlikely characters. Noel Lord (Rip Torn), an old man with white hair flowing below his shoulders and a metal hook for a hand, has lived on his land all his life and is resisting a power company’s attempt to take it over. An Indian woman named Bangor (Tantoo Cardinal) has been with him as housekeeper and lover for decades. She wears a man’s crushed hat, is missing a front tooth and holds no illusions about the need to take the power company’s money and go.

–Caryn James, The New York Times

--Kevin Thomas, The LA Times


"..thoughtful, well-paced, and never manipulative."
