Description

Storyline

Foxfire  Fierce but aging widow Annie Nations lives alone on her farm. Unable to let go of the past — she sometimes visits with the ghost of her husband — Annie gets pulled into a very current battle with a real estate developer looking to buy her land. Annie also needs to help her son, Dillard, a country singer struggling to raise his two daughters on his own. As Annie deals with these pressures, she begins to reflect on her long life on the farm.

Brilliant

Foxfire  So, it’s B-Grade and low budget… and? This is my favourite film of all time: it’s emotional, it’s very clever with flashback integration, and it’s a reflection on different lives. Country people are as solid as the characters portrayed them, and 80 years ago, people lived and loved as the two main characters did. I am thoroughly annoyed I can’t get it on DVD, I’ve worn out 3 video tapes now. Anyone who hasn’t seen it needs to… if you have a heart anyhow. John Denver was so young when they made this, his talent has left us. He sings in this film, music I’ve not heard before and can’t get from anywhere, but is a touching representation of life and love… Jessica Tandy and Hume are no longer with us either, and their real life love and true devotion shines through in the film and through their characters, making it easy to see just how much they loved each other.

Old gives way to the new

 
Wonderfully done film concerning an old woman who is being asked to sell her mountaintop home to a land developer. Since she has lived there most of her life, of course she is reluctant. But time is against her; life is becoming harder and harder to bear while living on this sloping piece of ground. Her son wants her to leave so she will be safer, while the woman is seeking advice from the imagined presence of her deceased husband. A lot of flashback takes place as son and mother re-live their not always rosy lives on the old homeplace.
