Trailer for The River.
This emotionally-charged film celebrates the triumph of a young rural couple as they face nature's greatest ravages, the threat of poverty and a wrenching separation. Sissy Spacek, Mel Gibson and Scott Glenn star in this moving tribute to love, faith, determination and the vanishing America of the independent farm family. Tom and Mae Garvey (Gibson and Spacek) are struggling to keep their homestead safe from the local power authority who wants to flood their land. When Mae's former beau, John Wade (Glenn), turns out to be in charge of the plan to acquire the property, tensions run high, climaxing in a devastating confrontation on the flooded river banks.
John Wade, festival coordinator of The Biggest Picture, an environmental film festival, introduces 'King Corn,' a documentary about the impact the agricultural-industrial complex has had on American diets and health at the Firehouse Theater in Richmond, VA March 31, 2008. The film marked the opening of the fifteenth annual James River Film Festival.
