Harvest for the Heart (1994) Rated G

harvestThe night before his wedding, Jacob Hansen leaves town. Twenty years later, he returns to find his former fiancée married to his brother. Starring Ted Shackelford, Ron White, Rebecca Jenkins

This movie is a take-off of the prodigal son story in the Bible. One son leaves home and returns to a welcome party that leaves a bad taste in the mouth of the son that stayed. The movie accurately represents dairy-farming and small town life. It uses the harvest as a metaphor for drawing out the best in people and offering forgiveness.  With a positive message and solid storytelling, this is a film to see.
