Christopher Walken and Glenn Close headline the cast in this excellent series of three Hallmark Hall of Fame movies.
In the first movie of the series, "Sarah, Plain and Tall," Walken plays a widowed Kansas farmer who desperately needs someone to help him rear his children while he tends to providing for the family via his farm in the early 1900s. Glenn Close plays Sarah, a woman from Maine, who responds to Walken's newspaper ad search for a wife. The rest of the story focuses on the developing relationships between Walken, Close, and the children. An excellent story and great movie -- 5 stars all the way.
In the second movie, "Skylark" (sequel to Sarah, Plain and Tall), the story of Walken and Close's life continues as they face a severe drought, possible failure of the farm, and stresses those things place upon the family. Top-notch, equal in emotional impact and believability with "Sarah, Plain and Tall" -- definitely another 5-star movie.
The third movie, "Winter's End" finds an unexpected guest in Walken and Close's home -- Walken's father, long absent from any family interactions. In this movie, the children have grown considerably (I believe that all the members of the original cast are still together). While an enjoyable movie, this one is not in the same class as the first two, and hovers someplace around 3.5 to 4 stars.
I awarded the set 5 stars on the collective strength of the first two movies.
Just in case you hadn't noticed, Walken is often cast in somewhat quirky roles, but this is probably my favorite work of his. He plays a devoted father dealing with a range of believable real-life issues. These movies also underscore the incredible talent of Close, who can pull off roles as diverse as Sarah's and that of Disney's Cruella DeVil!
Do yourself a favor...if you haven't watched these movies, watch them. They are wonderful.
Have a great day!

I first got introduced to these movies in December 2005 by an older friend who said that these movies are very very good.
After watching them I went on the net and purchased them. I loved them so much that I brought another set as a gift.
I will not go into what the story line is about as many other reviews have done that already but what I will say is this.
These movies are the best non Christian movies in my opinon ever made. Sarah Plain and Tall movies focus on the importance of family, forgiveness,healing,love....I could not praise these productions enough and if I could give more then 5 stars I would.
If you are looking for clean wonderfully made productions to add to your collection that the whole family can enjoy both young and old. This collection of movies would fit the bill.

Great series of movies!
I first stumbled across this movie wondering what Christopher Walken would be like in a "warm,fuzzy" movie with Glenn Close! Well, I was totally surprised and I thouroughly enjoyed it! The acting was wonderful by the entire cast.
I truely cared about the Witting family - how they became a family, and the trials that farm-life in the midwest in early 1900's provided the family. This three-part series was very warming! A definate movie for families, and people who simply enjoy sitting down with a wonderful movie that takes you to another place and time. A series which I really hate to see end.
I rented the last in the series first, and promptly went back and rented the first two. I now own all 3 movies!
Highly recommended as a real feel-good movie with wonderful charactors and good acting performances by Glenn Close (as always), Christopher Walken and the rest!

Thank God there are three of the "Sarah" movies. I can sit down in an afternoon and lose myself in these pioneer day movies. I can escape the problems of the world and find peace in Sarah, Plain and Tall. The books were such small tokens to society, but the movies are huge trophies to brighten the world. Lose yourself in the world of droughts, fires, children, animals, farm work, and love. I cannot recommend these movies to do them justice. Wonderful. Exciting. Heartfelt.

The entire Sarah Plain and Tall series is excellent. Wonderfully acted and great family watching. Renforcing family values while providing great entertainment. You will laugh and cry and struggle right along with the family.

By the time you watch all of these (there are three) Sarah and her bunch are family. You watch the kids grow up and there are these marvelous stories and it's just good entertainment. Sarah comes to Kansas to marry a widower farmer to "make a difference" to him and his two children. The first movie concerns their meeting and eventually marrying, the second movie shows their life through a drought and forced separation and the third brings them into WW1 and some personal family problems. Everything is done perfectly and you'll enjoy these time and again. I've watched them all several times.
