I saw this movie and I have to say that it was a wonderful look at life in the 1860's. I have seen very many movies that deal with the life and times of people from that time period and I have to say that this movie makes you really feel what the characters are going through. It was a very touching movie. It even caught my husbands attention and he enjoyed it almost as much as I did.
This is one of those movies that are sure to touch anyones heart. You should be ready with a box of tissue as it can get pretty emotional at times. This is one movie that does not shirk away from showing life the way it really is not the typical Hollywood type of look.
