Trivia

Much of the film was shot on the land, and at the home (Wavering Place), of Dr. Julian Adams, the brother of Weston Adams. During the 19th century the land and home belonged to James P. Adams, who was the brother of Robert Adams II (the protagonist of the film). See more »

Goofs

In the scene where Robert first sees Eveline the bodice of the dress has very thin, synthetic looking material (authentic materials are MUCH heavier) and it appears to be the middle of the day (off-shoulder gowns were not worn until evening/night by anyone of marrying age). See more »

It made me feel like I lived back then!
17 July 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Being a native of South Carolina, I just truly "lived" in this movie. The actors 'became' the characters and I could feel what it was like during that turbulent time.

This is not a "slick" film one way or the other. Gwendolyn Edwards makes you want to bow and offer her your hand for a promenade; Julian Adams makes you realize what true Southern men went through during that time: it was not easy, nor pat, nor automatic. It was a time that was hard on all Southerners.

This film made it natural that you identify with the characters: they were not heroes, supermen, or plastic celebrities. They were real people.

I'll add this to my collection, and that is a rare honor indeed. Movies are so cheap and easily attainable that it's not worth the time and trouble to buy them. But I will definitely buy this one so that I always have it near to hand.

A million thanks to Julian and Weston Adams and to Gwendolyn Edwards. You all made it so real and so natural.

Thank you.
