Storyline

It is an American Civil War movie about a woman from North Carolina ( Sarabeth Ellis ) whose husband has joined the army of Confederate States of America. While her husband is away in war, a creepy neighbor is molesting her, and her daughter. In the skirmish on the family's farm, her husband got killed, and her daughter found him. She does not tell her mother, that her father is dead from fear that her mother would not take the news to well. They also discover a gravely wounded Union soldier who is using their cellar as hide-out. Together they decide to nurse him back to health and hide him when Confederate soldiers check the house. When the Union soldier recovers, Sarabeth makes sure he reaches his army. Upon his return, he is taken as a spy. Sarabeth runs out of food and the farm is burned to the ground, and she learns that her husband is dead. Yet, she is reunited with the Union soldier, and she decides to start a new life with him and her daughter. Written by Titus Pulo

I didn't make it through to the end
5 August 2013 | by See all my reviews

I love movies. A movie has to really be bad for me to not like it. I only made it 20 minutes with this movie, then I had to just put a stop to it. I really wanted to like it. I just couldn't do it.

As a period piece set during the civil war, I looked forward to the costumes, props and scenery. Sadly, they weren't enough to carry me through to see it to the end.

What killed it for me was the acting. Really bad acting. Even Berenger, who I've come to expect more from, couldn't pull it together for this one. And the main characters, the mother and little girl, were just horrible actors, I'm sorry to say. So stiff and unconvincing in their dialogue that I just couldn't stand to watch the train wreck before me any longer.

I gave it 20 minutes, every one of which was wasted.
