The only unfortunate part of the movie was that I missed the ending. What a bummer. Sally Field was wonderful throughout the movie. As a wife, mother, friend, lover, and daughter-in-law, she performed well. She is so believable and it was really interesting to see what life and culture was like in the past. When she referred to the conventions of life and how stifling they were at the time, she inspired me to "look outside the box". She was a true friend, even when her unexpected match-making resulted in her losing her lover. The last part I was able to see was after the picnic with Sam and the children when she gave in a kissed him. I would love to know where I could get a copy of the movie.
