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
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.
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.
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.
