The crucial flaw in the movie's plot is that [Scott] Glenn's ideas, which are supposed to make him the bad guy, sound like simple common sense.
Starring Mel Gibson and Sissy Spacek, The River is one of three films dealing with the plight of American farmers which came out in the same year, 1984.
Not one of Sissy's best moments. I guess she had to put up with being married to Mel Gibson and see her farm wash away. It would leave a lasting mark on anyone. I feel no more sympathy for the American farmer after viewing this one.
A movie that shows you not to judge Sissy Spacek by her performance in Carrie.
Sissy is good as always, Mel over earnest.
Just a good emotionally-charged film celebrates the triumph of a young rural couple as they face nature's greatest ravages, the threat of poverty and a wrenching separation.
