Cross Creek

Director Martin Ritt

The true story of the novelist Marjorie Kinnan Rawlings, who retreated in 1928 to an isolated plantation in order to write. Leaving behind her comfortable New York city life - and her marriage - she faced the backwoods alone. Her experiences in the swampy scrub country and the lives of her rustic neighbors became the subjects of her books and in the land and the people she found inspiration and love.
