Trivia

Much of this movie was shot on the land, and at the house (Wavering Place), of Dr. Julian Adams, the brother of Weston Adams. During the nineteenth century, the land and house belonged to James P. Adams, who was the brother of Robert Adams II (the protagonist of the film). See more »

Goofs

Eveline's hair should not have been down in a short braid with a colored hair-band at the end. Women of that time typically had their hair twisted up at the nape of their neck and, also, were very conscious that the piece (snood or similar) that is holding up their hair is of the same color as their hair.

Uh boy...
28 November 2010 | by don90405See all my reviews

A noble cause in wanting to make this film by the family of John Adams, but uh boy, there are serious script flaws, lack of believability in some of the characters due to sub-par acting (by Julian Adams, mainly), continuity problems, and a wardrobe that at times looks like it came out of a cracker-jacks box. This film is billed as being filled with passion and being "explosive", according to one IMDb reviewer. I think dead people are more passionate and explosive! I don't know why this film is getting so many positive reviews, it's really not good at all. I'm only giving it 3 stars myself out of consideration for the family's desire to tell the story of their heritage (assuming it is all true, but I've found nothing on the history of Robert Adams anywhere else but in this film, so who knows how much of the movie is historically accurate).

Even if you're a civil war history buff, this film will likely barely hold your interest (if at all).

Sorry, Adams family. Nothing personal, I'm just calling it like I see it.
