Synopsis / Plot
Based on the Pulitzer Prize-winning best-selling novel, "A Thousand Acres" follows the saga of the Cook family, headed by the indomitable patriarch, Larry Cook (JASON ROBARDS). Cook's kingdom is a fertile farm that spans 1,000 acres, but the seeds of its destruction are sown when he impulsively decides to distribute it among his three daughters, Ginny (JESSICA LANGE), Rose (MICHELLE PFEIFFER) and Caroline (JENNIFER JASON LEIGH). The apportioned land soon begins to divide the family. Long-guarded secrets, unspoken rivalries and denied desires, buried just beneath the surface of their respective lives, are unwillingly unearthed, with profound, catastrophic and ultimately liberating repercussions.
1997: Nominated for Golden Globe: Best Actress Drama (Jessica Lange)
