I always like a happy ending. This was interesting but didn't give me the ending I would have liked.

A complex story. We are the villain for we identify more with head of the household who needs to control that which is beyond his control. Redemption only comes with recognition.

(5 out of 5 stars)

"After The Harvest is a well done film with a lot of interesting characters. Sam Shepard gives an excellent performance portraying a complex and domineering man who completely controls his wife and four children.

The story begins when a young schoolteacher arrives in a rural area to live with a farm family. The mother and children of the family are distant and make very few overtures of friendship towards the teacher. The father lets her know that he will be watching her conduct and is responsible for her since she is living in his home.

Although the ages of the children are not stated. They appear to be in their late teens to early twenties. Their father works them all very hard and the girls labor along side their brothers. They tend the animals, mend fences, and plant and harvest the crops. Their mother is aloof and there is no love or affection shown by either parent towards their offspring. The teacher is the catalyst and becomes friends with the oldest daughter, Jude, who is a strong character and the one who usually stands up to her father; however, all of his children fear him.

When the teacher encourages Jude to socialize and date, things change for the entire family. Surprisingly, the mother becomes a key player when she makes a startling discovering and has to come to grips with her own past.

This film was made in Canada, and is really worth seeing.
