Legends of the Fall (1994). Spiritual Movie Review - Jacklyn A. Lo

The movie Legends of Autumn (1994) is worth a look.

My favourite hero here is Colonel William Ludlow. The father of three sons, he lives in the middle of nature, away from urban civilization.

separation the wheat from the chaff

Throughout his life, Ludlow constantly evaluates people and situations, in other words, solves the difficult task of separating the wheat from the chaff.

freedom

Most importantly, when he teaches his sons what is true and what is false, he gives them the freedom to make their own choices.

principles

William is consistent in his principles and does not depart from them even at the insistence of officials and his son.

mature soul

These features reveal a mature soul in Ludlow, a soul with established qualities towards the Light and a deep understanding of the intangible values of Light.

mental statement

Another fascinating character in this story is Susannah Fincannon. 

Being the bride of Samuel, one of the Colonel’s sons, she develops a passion for another son, Tristan.

balance of mind

As a result, she loses her balance of mind.

Therefore, on the way to her imaginary happiness, Susanne twice makes a strong mental statement, wishing death to people “on her way.”

suffering

However, unable to achieve her desires and return to mental balance, she suffers deeply and commits suicide.

Summing up: be careful of your desires and take care of the mental balance.
