Still from <i>A Farmer's Wife</i>


  • Filmmakers like Ken Burns and Bill Moyers talk a lot about 'the American character,' but David Sutherland actually shows it to us in THE FARMER'S WIFE... as good a documentary as has ever been made for television. It is documentary as social conscience and window on the American soul.

    The Baltimore Sun
  • THE FARMER'S WIFE could be the most elegantly simple and monumentally elegaic portrait of an American family ever seen on television...[it] comes along at a moment in our history when we need its messages most.

    The Boston Herald
  • Intense, heartbreaking and beautifully produced.

    The Associated Press
  • A coherent and compelling story worthy of a classic novel.
