I just watched a great movie from Netflix. "Sweet Land" -- the love story about a Minnesota farmer who takes a mail-order bride from Germany, but she is not accepted by the community. The acting is superb -- if you are a Grey's Anatomy fan, the lead actress is the girl on Grey's who was in the ferry accident that Alex fell in love with. Of course, after you see this movie, you'll realize she is far too talented of an actress to have her Grey's character be the pinnacle of her career. I also loved the music and the scenery. While Minnesota may not be the most scenic part of the country, there is a simple beauty in the rolling farmlands, one that I can appreciate SOOOOOOOO much more now that I don't actually live there and have to endure the -30 degree winters, haha. Seriously, though, I do have a place for Minnesota in my heart and did enjoy the movie. With all the trash out there in Hollywood today, if you are looking for a simple and sweet movie, this one's for you.
