Leo Burmester, Blythe Danner, and Guy Ale star in this tense domestic drama. A disturbed woman murders her daughter, and her husband and son are forced to hide the body and try to keep the incident a secret. The Farmhouse was written and directed by Marcus Spiegel, who adapted the film from his stage play of the same name.

While this movie is a far cry from the blockbuster events released during its time period (2000), I must say it's a shame that Blythe Danner is not more recognized as an Oscar-worthy actress. Maybe she is, but she doesn't have one and that is a shame. Her performance in this movie was incredibly moving and I was completely sympathetic to her character. Not since Sally Field's performance in Sybil have I seen a more convincing portrayal of the emotions running amok in the mind of an emotionally disturbed woman. If you're a Blythe Danner fan, this is a must see. If you're not a Blythe Danner fan, you will become one.
