Steenburgen saves this tiring drama about a writer and her days on an orange grove.

Cross Creek is a simple but intriguing and inspirational tale of a woman's journey to self discovery with two excellent supporting peroformances (torn and woodard), enchanting visuals and playful score

A nice drama with great performances from Mary Steenburgen, Rip Torn, Alfre Woodward, and Dana Hill. Great costumes, score, cinematography, and sound too

Cross Creek, based on the memoirs of The Yearling author Marjorie Kinnan Rawlings, offers a sanitized vision of her early struggle to publish a novel and the Florida backwoods which inspired her prose. A stellar performance by Rip Torn just about keeps the saccharine level at bay.

Great performances by Steenburgen, Coyote and Torn, along with some beautiful cinematography make this biopic an interesting experience, even if you have never read any of Rawlings' work.

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.

A very real, personal story, biographical of the author of The Yearling and Jacob's Ladder. The acting is very good, the characters are very likable.

I found this movie to be quite enjoyable. The history behind the lives of those who lived on the river and the hardships they faced was authentic. The scenery was beautiful. The story was enthrawling. The actors were superb. I would recommend this movie.
