A mini-series dramatization of the controversial 1992 attack by federal agents on the Idaho home of Randy Weaver, a white seperatist. The ten-day siege, begun over a minor gun charge, resulted in the deaths of Weaver's son, wife and dog, and a U.S. Marshall. The incident caused major public outcry against the FBI and U.S. Marshals.Written by

The outdoor scenes were filmed in northern California north of Oroville near the Concow valley. Lake Concow can be seen in several shots including the opening credits in part 2 of the movie. The family home was constructed near the intersection of Concow Rd and Rim Rd. The shot of the train crossing one bridge with another bridge above it is the Pulga bridge along hwy 70. See more »

A chilling dramatization of a controversial event.
Someone said this was "allegedly true". Scratch the allegedly. It happened.I saw the news reports. This movie recreates the events at Ruby Ridge in exacting detail. Mistakes were made on both sides,and William Degan,Sam Weaver and Vicki Weaver paid the price. The cast is excellent,particularly Laura Dern,Randy Quaid,Kirsten Dunst,GW Bailey, Diane Ladd,Gary Graham,Nicholas Pryor,Bob Gunton,Tracy Griffith and Joe Don Baker.Well directed and well written. I do not agree with the Weaver's views but this story needed to be told.
