Conventional and circumstance bind the young Ethan Frome to a wife he cannot love. Grimly resigned to his fate, he sees for himself a life as bleak and constricted as the New England farm on which he lives. Then the appearance in his bleak personal landscape of his ailing wife's orphaned young cousin, Mattie Silver, rouses in Ethan a fierce passion that provokes a last, desperate impulse to free himself from his dismal destiny.

This was a labor for me to complete despite the excellent narration by Richard Thomas. I remember seeing the film from 1993 & would prefer that. I'm just not a fan of EW even though she is considered a great American writer of her era, enjoyed yet today. Overly wordy in a language I labor to translate to my understanding, however I don't understand Shakespeare either.
