I first saw this great film about 6 years ago, and have seen it twice since then; and have only two weeks ago gotten it on DVD (At Wast, as Elmer Fudd would say!) Diane Lane (as usual) excels in this story of a young girl age 14, who marries a 40's Confederate veteran and it basically tells the story of (literally) the rest of their lives. Very touching,moving at times, and VERY well acted. Also turning in a stellar performance is Donald Sutherland as the veteran, and a Cecily Tyson, also in her case AS USUAL! It's simply an excellent film from start to finish - even the supporting cast does that; support the film with exceptional acting. I recommend it highly!!!
