"The Prize Winner of Defiance, Ohio" is a 2005 drama. With 10 children to feed, postwar Ohio housewife Evelyn Ryan (Julianne Moore) has gotten used to being resourceful, stretching her husband's meager salary to the limit. But when clipping coupons won't cut it, she's forced to rely on her creativity. Woody Harrelson and Laura Dern co-star in this uncommon comedy-drama based on a heartwarming memoir by Ryan's daughter, Terry, who recounts her mother's knack for winning contests. "The Prize Winner of Defiance, Ohio" directed by Jane Anderson. You can download "The Prize Winner of Defiance, Ohio" from our site!
