A very well done film by Director Whitney Hamilton. Not only did she direct the film she also wrote and stars in it.
This was a very well made film about the civil war and the women who wanted to fight in the war that they disquised themselves as men in order to fight in the war. This is a film that definitely kept my interest.
The direction, writing and acting in this film was first rate. I am looking forward to more films by Whitney Hamilton.
I am looking forward to seeing the sequel to the film Union that is supposed to be release later this year.
Many people only watch major films, but if someone just took the time they will find that independent films are just as good.
