< O Pioneers! (1992)

O Pioneers!

An inadequate adaptation from Wila Catherís almost classic novel. It suffers from a tacky set, terrible acting and clumsy directing. Alexandra Bergson, a woman who single-handedly tamed the wild prairie of Nebraska in the later 1800's, gives the audience a look at her interesting and tragic life. This is a Hallmark Hall of Famer which is a dead giveaway that it will be cheesy and unimpressive. Well, it corresponds with the stereotype. The story starts off very well, but the cast seems to be constantly on helium and unfocused; they don't sufficiently play their parts.
