Martin Ritt's chronicle of Marjorie Kinnan Rawlings is not particularly illuminating of the writer's life, but it's well acted by Mary Steenburgen and especially Alfre Woodard.

It's an uncompelling, yet warm, tale which lightly skips over the woman's travails by illustrating a series of vignettes of rural humanity.

Never one to stint himself when it comes to romantic overkill, Ritt piles on the slush with even more gusto than usual.

The script may take some liberties with the facts, but when the resulting movie is this likeable you soon cease to care.

Somehow, Mr. Ritt manages to use this very artificiality in the service of an optimism that is very much his own.
