The Revolt of Mother

1986 NR

Mary Wilkins Freeman's affecting tale is retold beautifully in this installment of the American Short Story series. Amy Madigan stars as an 1890s New England farmer's wife whose roles are to support her husband (Jay O. Sanders) and to tend the couple's land. But while they lovingly care for their farm, their marriage is in shambles. Among the supporting cast are Robert Walker, Katherine Hiler and Benjamin Bernovy.
