Sweet Land is a love story set in rural Minnesota during the 1920's. When Olaf Torvik sends for a mail order bride from Sweden, he is unaware that Inge Altenberg is German. The Lutheran minister refuses to marry the couple following years of anti-German sentiment after World War I. Eventually, as the two work their farm together, they fall in love.
Beautifully filmed and a delightful story - is that rare film the whole family can enjoy together. Rated PG and available on DVD at the Burton Public Library.
