The ups and downs of a Norwegian immigrant family, circa 1910.
They were poor in wealth, but rich in accents.
I had anticipated watching a masterpiece after all the good things I read about this movie. Instead, I met with nauseating over sentimentality and some of the worst accents I've been subjected to on film.
Feel good movie. The kind of film we'll show to our grandchildren when churches, teachers and moral leaders will have disappeared.
This film gets me every time I see it. Too beautifully made to be a guilty pleasure, it has honest sentiment.
