This film is not currently playing on MUBI but 30 other great films are. See what’s now showing
one important aspect of this movie is that it is inspired by The Mayor Of Casterbridge by Thomas Hardy, it is somewhat lacking, tho it does convey something of the era in America when land grabbing and gold rushes destroyed the souls of men. Well made & worth a look. Trivia fans may be interested to know, Nastassia Kinski who plays 'the wife' in this movie started her career in Tess, also based on a Hardy novel
