I can't believe how underrated and virtually forgotten this film is. Country was by far my favourite of the three farm movies released in 1984, the other two being Places in the Heart and The River. Jessica Lange's performance is startlingly vivid, Sam Shepard and Wilford Brimley both do great supporting work, and it explores its social themes with admirable grit and intelligence. It's an incisive, penetrating film that delivers with full credibility.share
