DVD Recommedation: 'Sweet Land'

It's been a while since AT posted on the Arts & Letters beat, so here's a much delayed DVD recommendation. The movie is Sweet Land and it's a joy.

We saw Sweet Land months ago when it played at the Circle Cinema, Tulsa's alternative showcase. The movie was a big hit at the Circle—and no wonder. It's a beautifully made love story set in Minnesota in the early decades of the twentieth century.

If that description sounds like an unlikely formula for film success, don't let that fool you. Sweet Land is a small but wonderful gem, a movie that takes its time with its characters and treats them with sensitivity and grace.

But don't take our word for it: Head for the closest DVD rental store and get a copy of Sweet Land. (You can thank us later.)
