When Will is going from man to man in Burrell's base camp serving beans, he slips something from the duster pocket of one of the men he serves (at 0:07:03). Closer examination on the DVD confirms it is the pair of cigarettes he then sells to the next man he serves. This 3 second act alerts the viewer to Will's moral compass. See more »
At the very beginning of the movie, as the boy walks toward the cabin, there is a battle - obviously miles away - occurring over the hill. However, as soon as a flash occurs from a cannon fire there is the sound of the firing - sound travels slower than light, so you should first see the flash and then a time late the report of the discharge.

What every indie film aspires to be
This film is magnificent, it's on par with a studio film as far as the technical aspects. It's lit flawlessly, it's shot beautifully and the score is powerful. The wardrobe, props, hair and make up are all on point. It really brings you back to the civil war period. Now to the story, although intense, this is not an action film. What I mean by that is you have to be patient and let the story unfold and you will absolutely be rewarded. It's raw and dirty in a great way and it will pull at your emotions. The characters are fleshed out brilliantly, the writing is stellar all the way through. Now to the highlight of this film, the cast. I'm very familiar with Bill Oberst Jr. and I was once again pleased with what I saw. There is a certain genuine rawness to his performance and his turn in this film was no different. The entire cast is simply brilliant! I look forward to checking out what they do next. Under the guidance of writer/director Chris Eska, this journey cannot help but suck you in. Eska is someone definitely worth following. Bravo to the producers, keep your bar high.
