"we LOVED it"
Saw the movie with my Mom & we LOVED it. Mr. McGinn had us in tears and stitches. Feeding range cubes out his pickup window & sitting with his coffee had us both tearing up. My Dad's favorite thing was to get a box of donuts, a cup of coffee, the OWH & head to the pasture. He'd find his herd and park in the middle of them.
"My Christmas gift of your DVD to two family members was a hit!!! They were so surprised and LOVED the movie."
- Ruth S.

"make plans to see it"
If you have not seen this film yet, make plans to see it...What an amazing way to honor Nebraska beef producers.
Not a typical Hollywood drama - the drama comes as the viewer allows him/herself to virtually transcend beyond the screen & embrace the raw reality of this lifestyle.
- Karla D.
(The film contains characters) as complex as any that our fellow Nebraskans Henry Fonda or Marlon Brando created.
- William G.
"This movie is real! It tells the real story of the American rancher and accompanies that story with naturally beautiful scenery. A true American way of life."

"connected with it"
Thank you for all the work you put into the film. I really enjoyed the film and connected with it. It's safe to say that everyone in the audience did as well!
- Mark W.
You may not know the people in the film, but you know people just like them: they gather around a big table at the restaurant on rainy days, talk land & cattle & machines. Most days they are on the land, working it, loving it, & hating it. This is a beautiful film, and well worth the time.
"love their animals"
Truly showed how livestock people love what they do & how much they love their animals. I hope you have great success in getting this into larger urban areas to help alleviate some of the myths & rumors people in Ag face.
- Suzy K.
"Ordered & watched last night. Powerful. The real deal. Story of so many of our ranchers but particularly poignant... Real people helping each other in time of need."
