Last night as I was channel surfing looking for something interesting to watch, I came across a movie which I had not seen before, and to my delight, one of my favourite actors was starring.
Being an Anthony Hopkins fan, I thought that I had seen all of his movies, but somehow, I managed to miss this one, "Legends of the Fall" (1994).....how was this possible?
It was already quite late (for me) in the night and when I looked at the running time, I knew I would probably fall asleep towards the last portion of the movie...don't you just hate when that happens?
However, the background scenery and the actors all pulled me in, and before I knew it, I was totally immersed in this wonderful movie.
From the imdb website:
"Set in the Rocky Mountains of Montana in the early 1900s, this is a tale
of love, betrayal, and brotherhood. After being discharged, Colonel
Ludlow decides to raise his three sons in the wilds of Montana, where
they can grow up away from the government and society he has learned to
despise. The three brothers mature and seem to have an unbreakable bond,
until Susanna enters their lives. When Samuel, the youngest of the
three, returns from college he brings with him his beautiful fiancée,
Susanna. The eldest son, Alfred, soon finds himself in love with his
brother's fiancée, and things get worse when he discovers a growing
passion between Susanna and Tristan. Colonel Ludlow's favorite son,
Tristan is willful and as wild as the mountains. As the brothers set out
to fight a war in Europe, suspicion and jealousy threatens to tear
apart their once indestructible bond."
I watched it till the end without a nod in between.
I have no idea how this Anthony Hopkins movie slipped below my radar for so many years. My goodness it was released in 1994 for crying out loud!!
I thought I had viewed all of his movies....I guess not.
I thoroughly enjoyed it, and will probably add it to my collection....it's a keeper.
