The third and final episode of the Sarah, Plain and Tall series is a 1999 production reuniting stars Glenn Close and Christopher Walken with original director Glenn Jordan. Taking the story eight years beyond the original tale, Winter's End is set in a harsh Kansas winter of 1918, with the specter of death everywhere: soldiers are dying overseas during World War I, influenza is at epidemic proportions in the U.S., and an old man has returned to the Witting farm with an uncertain reception. He's John Witting (Jack Palance), father of Jacob (Walken), and the two men have not seen each other since John abandoned his son years ago. Reconciliation comes hard, punctuated by cliffhanger disasters (Jacob breaks his leg and burns with a fever, Sarah almost dies in a heavy snowstorm), but this most brutal of trial periods for the Wittings still invites a viewer to yearn for a more innocent--perhaps mythical--time in America. A worthy and rewarding finish to a trilogy fit for families yet sophisticated enough for all ages, Winter's End may be one of the last network television classics in an era of audience relocation to multichannel cable. --Tom Keogh

After watching the first two movies in this trilogy, you will find the third story to be a satisfying conclusion. In the first movie, Sarah and Jacob write letters, fall in love and then marry. The story deals with the loss of Jacob's wife and how Sarah is taking her place and finding her way into the hearts of his children. Skylark is the second movie in the series and deals with a family staying together despite the difficulties of farm life. They are committed to making their way on the dusty Kansas prairie.

In Winter's End, the issues drift to the past and how they affect the future. Jacob's children have grown considerably and his daughter Anna (Lexi Randall) is in love with a boy who has gone off to war and she spends her time waiting for him to return home while nursing the ill in town. Caleb (Christopher Bell) is now old enough to take on more farm responsibilities. Jacob and Sarah's daughter is quite impetuous and will make you laugh as she will remind you of how Sarah was in the first movie! In dealing with life on the farm, Jacob has an accident and Sarah spends a night out in the snow.

While all these issues are presenting themselves, Sarah has a calm understanding and supports Jacob while he is dealing with the challenge of forgiving his father. Their love is more mature and while the heady days of the first movie seem to have faded, they are deeply commited to one another and their children. They open their home to a stranger who they later find out is Jacob's father.

Jack Palance takes center stage as Jacob's father who returns to the Witting family farm which is the only place he ever felt was home. The issues are presented in a loving way which will make you value family more and see the hurt a person can do by making the wrong choices.

Loved this movie! Seeing the previous two videos of this series is not necessary - I hadn't. However, I bet you'll find yourself looking for (or buying)the first two videos after you view this one! I was initially drawn to this video because of the Christopher Walken-Glenn Close pairing. The charactors Walken and Close play are very good and the two actors work well together. Glen Close, as usual, is great! And Walken, to my surprise, is totally likeable and loveable(vs the "scarry" actor I've come to know in so many of his movies!). The charactor development, as well as the wonderful acting, made this a movie that I found myself genuinly caring about the charactors. It certainly kept my interest. It's a great "feel-good, cozy" movie. It certainly took me away into a fantasyland to the early 1900's in the midwest. As soon as I returned this video to the video store, I immediately rented the two previous movies (and am now buying all 3). It is a wonderful series which I am sad to see end. I highly recommend this as a warm, enjoyable movie that families would love; as well as those who simply enjoy sitting by the fire, wrapped up in a blanket for the evening to watch a good movie!

The movie opens in March of 1918. The long, bitter winter has yet to come to an end. There is an epidemic of influenza in town and the war has taken Anna's boyfriend overseas. Much as Jacob and Sarah did, Anna waits for every letter from him while tending the sick in town. Back home on the farm, an unexpected visitor will soon rock Sarah's family to its core.
Although 'Winter's End' sounds exciting, its frightfully dull and unprofessional. The acting is just not up to par with the first two. Glen Close, Christopher Walken and the entire cast shine in `Sarah Plain & Tall' and `Skylark.' After seeing those, I suppose I was spoiled. I expected that high quality when I bought `Winter's End' and thus, I was shocked and dismayed by this poorly acted out movie. I've seen these actors/actresses at their best and they are very talented. Now, I am left baffled as to what happened here. Did they just not care this time around? Was it the director? A low budget? What? So many questions, so little answers. What really got me was when, `Sarah' (Glen Close) was caught out in a blizzard and almost froze to death. The depth of emotion put into that scene wouldn't fill a tea spoon. `Jacob' (Christopher Walken) put the most into it, but his acting was stilted, unreal and unnatural. Yet, the all time award for stiffness and unnatural acting would be a tie between, Jack Palance (Jacob's wayward father) and Christopher Bell (Caleb) They did a terrible job. To make matters worse, it looks as if the `honeymoon' is over for Sarah and Jacob in `winter's End.' There is no more of that `spark' we enjoyed in, `Sarah Plain & Tall' and `Skylark.' There might be one or two scenes where they shine as they once did, but for the most part, the chemistry is dead.

i liked this...but it was suprisingly different than the others. The overall tone to it seemed a little dreary, but it was still very touching. The little girl who played Cassie was adorable. It was a shock to see Lexi Randall and Christopher Bell so grown up though. I remember them as children in the two previous movies and here they are almost adults in winters end. But nevertheless this is still a charming movie with outstanding performances by glenn close and christopher walken.
