Biopic about the author of 'The Yearling', bestseller of the year 1938 in the USA. The Nature in Florida is beautiful. I'm not sure that Mary Steenburgen was the right choice to portray Marjorie Kinnan Rawlings, at least in my view. She never seems very inspired during the long shots showing her attempts to write her book. In fact, the whole film looks like a TV movie. Already forgotten.
