Seasons of Love ( 1999 ) (mini)

Based on George Dell's classic 1934 novel The Earth Abideth, stars Peter Strauss as Thomas Linthorne, a farmer, who, with his bride, Kate (Rachel Ward), settles a parcel of untilled Midwestern farmland in 1866. Linthorne is a dynamic and driven man who eventually becomes a pillar of the close-knit community. But there are trials and tribulations that eventually plague his dreams of the perfect life he has tried to create for his family. Over the span of 50 years, the Linthorne family will weather more than their share of hardship that affects each of them in dramatic ways. The Linthorne saga, set against the daily rituals and chores of life on the land, reveals the determination, strength and indomitable spirit of the families who settled America.
