Film Description

A Thousand Acres transplants King Lear to the American midwest, with a fine cast, great perfomances and a simmering air of slowly building tension. When retiring Iowa farmer Larry Cook (Jason Robards) announces that he wishes to split his land between his three daughters, the eldest - Ginny (Jessica Lange) and Rose (Michelle Pfeiffer) reluctantly agree. However, Caroline (Jennifer Jason Leigh) does not and is disowned by Larry as a result. The decision sparks off a tragic family feud: Larry soon falls out with Ginny, who has begun an affair with a local boy, and Rose, but loses a court battle to regain control of his farm.
