A shiny car! A washer-dryer! A pony! One overworked 1950s housewife wins these spoils and more in The Prize Winner of Definace, Ohio, a drama that suffers from silver-lining syndrome. Based on the life of Evelyn Ryan (Julianne Moore), whose contest-winning jingles (”Kraft’s Parkay won’t tear fresh bread/Even ice-cold it will smoothly spread”) helped feed her family of 12, it’s a charming true story; but the seesaw between hard knocks and windfalls — You’re evicted, but wait! You’ve just won $5,000! — turns the film into one queasy ride.
