Huge drama - The Field review by CW

Spoiler Alert
21/11/2017

This drama is Shakespearen in depth. Arguably the best role of Richard Harris’ career. I was barely able to recognize the chameleon John Hurd in his role as town fool. As story unfolds you know that it cannot have a happy ending. In this land of barren rocky ground, Richard Harris “the Bull” started working in a rented field with his parents. Now an old but extremely strong man, he hopes to pass the field on to his son. The widow who owns the field decides to sell it at auction. An outsider, an American, comes to the village to buy the land. Everyone loses. The ending is as dramatic as it gets. Not a happy story but one well worth seeing.
