Movie Reviews

A Woman of Independent Means
kayak queen | British Columbia, Canada | 10/31/2008
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This interesting film follows the life of a lady from Texas from her very early years in the late 19th century through her passing in the late 1960s. While the title intimates that the character has wealth, the true wealth of the character comes from her spirit in overcoming advertisies, the loss of a child, death of her husband while a young woman, raising her remaining children during the depression, etc. Acting throughout the film is very good and thanks to the good writing of the best-selling book the scriptwriting is based on, the story does not fall into the trap of becoming sappy. The attention to detail in costuming, sets, etc. make the several hours of this mini-series a delight. The story is engaging and you will wish it could go on longer at the end.
This film reminded me of some of the better BBC productions but in an American setting. I am not sure guys would love it, but it is a great chick-flick."

"I loved this when I saw it as a mini-series on TV. Was thrilled when I discovered it had been made into a DVD. Wonderful story line, excellent acting."
