Overview

Based on the award-winning play by Sam Shepard, this drama offers an unblinking look at a family desperately clinging to the last threads of the American dream. Weston Tate James Woods is an alcoholic Viet Nam veteran struggling to hold on to the family's farm; he often brags about his grand plans for the place, but in truth the land is just one step away from foreclosure. His wife Ella Kathy Bates is determined to hold her family together, though she often dreams of running away and isn't above sleeping with corrupt land developer Taylor Randy Quaid if it will help keep the farm in her family's hands. Their son Wesely Henry Thomas has the soul of a poet and dreams of a better life, while his sister Emma Kristin Fiorella has inherited her mother's strength, but also her mother's burden in holding the Tates together. Noted filmmaker Bruce Beresford adapted Shepard's play for the screen and served as executive producer; Michael McClary directed.
