Did You Know?


This movie was filmed in Greenwood, Mississippi, the same small town in which The Help (2011) was filmed. See more »


This is described as taking place in 1866 - two years after the War Between the States. The weapons used are anachronistic. The first Winchesters were made in 1866 and certainly not enough to have populated the 'West' so rapidly as to be the dominate arm in the movie. An the Springfield trapdoor shown in the movies wasn't around until 1873. See more »


[last lines]
General Calderon: Did your niece say anything else regarding David Kingston or his wife?
Governor Lawrence Sullivan Ross: She said he was badly wounded when he freed the prisoners and he rode out into the brush alone, never to be seen again. But she made no mention of a woman.
General Calderon: Perhaps you will allow me a small detail to go out and search for him.
Governor Lawrence Sullivan Ross: I don't think so, general. He rode off into the brush for a reason. If he wants to, he'll ride back out again.

User Reviews

Excellent movie
25 March 2018 | by YadasampatiSee all my reviews

I was really impressed by this great movie and the low rating seems totally unjustified to me. Sometimes you see a painting where it is not the content that catches your eye, but the way that it is painted. I would say that i have that experience with this movie: a well crafted piece of art. The acting is superb, the sound, music and scenery fit well together and create the perfect atmosphere for this story. Not a complex or spectacular story, but intriguing, and beautifully painted. Absolutely a must see for those who appreciate quality.
