HISTORIC FICTION & Adventure

As a HS world history teacher I would highly recommend this user-friendly supplement exemplar for a unit on the rise of a nationalist movement against imperialist oppression. The rarely told story of the 19th C Greek revolt against the Ottoman Empire is beautifully rendered here, replete with all the various points of view of the various levels of participant in both sides of the struggle. Feminists will love the female hero leader. It is rarely simplistic and satisfyingly complex. The characters are refreshingly multi-dimensional and motives are well developed. Costumes and battle scenes are appropriately juicy for a period piece of modest origins. Great story based on a novel. I was pleasantly surprised at how engaging it is! Great stand-out performances by the cast in general but especially from the notables Christopher Plummer, Patti Lupone, Billy Zane et al. A fun 2'15" film.
