A Thousand Acres by Jane Smiley


This book is a reworking of Shakespeare’s King Lear.

Nevertheless, Jane Smiley knew majestically how to portray the story of a family in Iowa. The patriarch decides to share his farm to his three daughters but not everything happens as planned.

I watched A Thousand Acres (1997) the movie a long time ago but I still do remember the magnificent work performed by the actresses Jessica Lange and Michelle Pfeiffer acting as Ginny and Rose respectively.
