An outstanding performance by Robert Duvall drives this tender, understated drama, based on a William Faulkner short story and scripted by Horton Foote. Hired to be the winter caretaker of a saw mill, a lonely Mississippi farmer (Duvall) unexpectedly falls in love with a young and abandoned pregnant woman (Olga Bellin) he finds wandering the property one day. With Sudie Bond, Peter Masterson, Richard McConnell. 103 min. Widescreen; Soundtrack: English. Two-disc set.
