Sarah - Plain And Tall | Series Collection


  • DVD
    $21.81
PUBLISHED: 4th March 2015
ANNOTATION:
Adapted from Patricia MacLachlan's much-loved books, The Sarah, Plain and Tall Complete Collection contains all three films in the series, exploring a rural saga about isolation, romance and the foundations of family life. 1. Sarah Plain and Tall: Kansas, 1910. Jacob Witting (Oscar winner Christopher Walken, The Deer Hunter), a widowed farmer who lost his wife during child birth, is overburdened by the task of running his farm and raising his two children by himself. In drastic need of domestic help he advertises in the newspaper for a mail-order bride. New England respondent Sarah Wheaton (Oscar nominee Glenn Close, Dangerous Liaisons) is keen to make the journey from her seaside dwelling in Maine to become Jacobs wife. But homesickness and the rugged Kansas countryside place a considerable strain on her expectations and outlook. 2. Skylark: Challenged by the unpredictable landscape, the Witting family face the devastating onset of drought. Ravaging the surrounding land and livestock, members of the farming community gradually abandon hope and their land, fleeing for better opportunities. As wells run dry and flash fires threaten the farm, the family stand united and vow to fight for their home. But a battle against the unpredictable and hostile elements of nature requires more than strength of will, as it is destined to challenge the Witting family to its very core. 3. Winter's End: The Witting family receive a visit from John (Oscar winner Jack Palance, City Slickers), the father of hard working farmer Jacob Witting. Abandoning Jacob and his mother long ago, there is a great rift between the men, with Jacob bitter about his fathers lack of family commitment. Disheartened by growing tensions, Sarah is challenged to reconcile the men for the sake of the three children who have never known the love of a grandfather.
