Terrific Movie
21 June 2017 | by See all my reviews

I didn't know exactly where this movie was going with the Gettysburg aspect of the story, but it all starts to come together when you think about how people throughout history have told themselves stories that justified a bad decision in life. What happens when your are face to face with a clear moral dilemma? Can you bury your integrity in lies? Surely, such a deception will haunt you if you have a conscience. Self interest makes it harder to do the right thing, and this test will be faced by everyone at some point in their life.
