Sweet Land * * * * A Midwestern Masterpiece


Movies like Sweet Land are rare for the same reason they are precious. This is film at it’s best because this is a film that talks about the joys, sorrows, illusion and magic of being … human. Sweet Land also offers wonderful cinematography, performances, and historical insight. I may have a special affection here because I’m so familiar with the the stoic yet emotionally charged Minnesotan heritage. I think this is one of the best films to capture the mystique that is … Midwestern America.

This movie is quiet and subtle with understated but brilliant performances so don’t expect anything like a blockbuster – just look for a quiet and uniquely Midwestern American film experience.
