Cross Creek is a lyrical but vivid portrait of life in the untamed backwoods of Central Florida in the late 1920s.
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.
Somehow, Mr. Ritt manages to use this very artificiality in the service of an optimism that is very much his own.
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.
Alas, this uninspired, perfunctory literary bio isn't saved by its handsome visuals.
At once touching and weird.
The script may take some liberties with the facts, but when the resulting movie is this likeable you soon cease to care.
Fine rendering of Marjorie Rawlings autobiographical novel. The material is well handled by Ritt an erratic director who produced most of his best work when it had a southern feel to it. Excellent work from two very good actresses, Mary Steenburgen and Dana Hill and a great one, Alfre Woodard. Rip Torn gives one of his most well judged performances keeping the ham that occasionally slips into his acting out of his work here.
