The Not True Story of Laura Ingalls Wilder
When I saw the previews for this movie, I thought "Good they are making a movie about one of the greatest authors." When I watched it I thought "True? Which part is true?"

First off the girl looked nothing like Laura. She was blonde and reminded me of Mary. I mean, she would have done well for married Laura, but they had her portraying Laura when she was 14 years old. Not many people in the mid-twenties can do that. And she wasn't feisty like Laura. Melissa Gilbert did a terrific job as Laura.

And where was the Nellie character? I mean, they put in some girl named Patsy. And you hardly even knew Laura had sisters. I mean in the TV series they had Laura interacting with her sisters, but in this movie it was like that they didn't matter.

And now, I hear, they are making another one. Beyond the Prairie: The True Story of Laura Ingalls Wilder 2.

If they do, I hope it's better than the first one. And more truthful.
