"J.L. Family Ranch" follows veteran rancher and former sheriff John Landsburg (Jon Voight), who is forced to face the federal bureaucracy when an old enemy, Tap Peterson (James Caan) seeking revenge over a decades-old grudge falsifies documents and alleges Landsburg doesn't actually own his beloved family ranch. John however isn't the type to go down without a fight.
Not since J.R. and Dallas has TV seen a family like this.
Heritage, Loyalty, Heartbreak, Redemption… 'J.L. Family Ranch' is the epitome of Hallmark.
With an amazing all-star cast: Jon Voight, James Caan, Melanie Griffith, and more… you will be drawn in from the start. 'J.L. Family Ranch' has the feel of a modern day western meets country song.
Rich in history, the name 'J.L. Family Ranch' says it all. John Landsburg (Jon Voight), as the patriarch, is determined to care for his family and his ranch, every member and square inch of it. To the death, if necessary and it just might be necessary!
When a local rancher, Tap Peterson (James Caan), with a vendetta, schemes with local government bureaucrats to take over the Landsburg ranch, John, along with his daughters Rebecca (Teri Polo) and Regan (Abby Brammell), and troubled, but loyal son Brady (Trevor Donovan), do everything in their power to fight back. They are devoted to their father and their roots, and nothing sways them away – not money, temptations, or threats.
This movie has such an authentic feel, so real. Very true to our lives today, as it delves into government control, imminent domain, and our basic rights and freedoms.
If you love American history, the old west, or the countryside… if you believe in an honest day’s work, for an honest day’s pay… and the good ole USA, you will be riveted by Hallmark Movies and Mysteries’ 'J.L. Family Ranch'.
