Sweet Land

Winner of multiple film festival awards - including the Independent Spirit Award for Best First Feature - Sweet Land is "a lovely, old-fashioned farm romance quietly doubling as a commentary on immigration and American identity" (The Boston Globe). "Intelligently written, brilliantly cast" (Variety) and "beautifully shot" (Chicago Tribune), this haunting tale of love, struggle and endurance offers an "emotion-packed" (The Hollywood Reporter) view of this country often overlooked by the history books.

Inge (Elizabeth Reaser) is a feisty German mail-order bride who has come to Minnesota to marry Olaf (Tim Guinee), a young Norwegian immigrant farmer of few words. But in a post-WWI, anti-German climate, the local minister (John Heard) openly forbids the marriage. Inge and Olaf fall in love despite the town's disapproval. But when the town banker (Ned Beatty) attempts to foreclose on the farm of his friend Frandsen (Alan Cumming), Olaf takes a stand...and the community unites around the young couple, finally accepting Inge as one of their own.
