Panthergirl's Pick of the Week: The Prize Winner of Defiance, Ohio



I remember hearing/reading terrific reviews for this film when it opened, but it must have run in VERY limited release. God knows why. It is a sweet, funny, unique and heart-rending film... based on the true story of a woman in the 50s who keeps her family afloat by writing catchy slogans and winning contests. A wonderful period piece with a quirky style and great performances.

Now here's an idea for a contest: Guess how many freckles Julianne Moore has! LOL
