Trivia

The watch carried by Julian Adams, playing Captain Robert Adams, in the film was the actual watch that Captain Adams owned and carried during the War. The watch was made in England in 1801. It was given to Captain Adams by his father Robert Adams I, who was given the watch by his father Joel Adams. It has been in the possession of the family ever since. See more »

Goofs

Eveline's hair should not have been down in a short braid with a colored hair-band at the end. Women of that time typically had their hair twisted up at the nape of their neck and, also, were very conscious that the piece (snood or similar) that is holding up their hair is of the same color as their hair.

Time well spent
28 June 2007 | by (Manchester, UK) – See all my reviews

OK, first and foremost i like good "realistic" war films, secondly i like films even better if they are based on fact. This was both, and a bonus to both of those critical points is the lead role, who is a descendant of the "historical" character who is the main focus of the film. My wife enjoyed the film too, hard to find a film both of you can watch knowing there's going to be some bloodshed mixed in with a love story, but it works and it works well. Its hard to tell at times this is not a big budget film, but reading about it elsewhere you know its not and you can appreciate it even more. You can see there's a lot of personal effort gone into getting this film made. You see so many people on here saying "well thats 90 minutes of my life wasted" well this is just the opposite, i wish it had been longer, you get a great insight into some real peoples lives during the civil war, and the authentic backdrops and locations just add to its quality.
