    Reader comments on The Real Dirt on Farmer John

    Subject: [no subject]
    Date: Feb 22, 2006
    Sender: Steve-OPrevious | Next

    The film is finally out in limited release throughout February and March (2006) so take the time and go see it. They have a website with places and times (www.therealdirt.net).

    This film reflects the struggles of American family farmers over the last fifty years and, more importantly, the universal HeroÔs Journey through life, death and rebirth. The scenes of Peterson with his mother overflow with love. But love and deep caring are the essence of the film. And at a time when we are bombarded with darkly cynical fare, The Real Dirt on Farmer John is the deep, fresh, lively flavor that will most satisfy our hunger for goodness and meaning.
