Interesting story, badly done
10 November 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

If you're a history buff, this is an interesting story. This film, however, is terrible at conveying any information about Anne CarrolTo be kind, the acting is horrible, stilted, and the accents are wrong. The film is slow, boring, and seemingly pointless. Ms. Carroll's role in the Lincoln administration and her value to the country is totally lost in this mess. The costuming and interiors are OK, there's few exterior shots and it's boring. Because of the bad acting and pacing, other important points (eg military issues, corruption) fall flat. It's never really explained why Anne Carroll chooses to support the North and oppose the secession of Maryland, although there are strong historical reasons. I think I'll read Blackwell's 1897 biography A Military Genius: Life of Anna Ella Carroll of Maryland (free on gutenberg.org).
