A movie almost as amazing as the book. Great soundtrack, good acting, and stunning filming locations.
I cried for days thinking about this movie after I first watched it. It was so haunting. Tragic and beautiful
This movie Make me sad but it's worth to see
A solid film of women surviving during Civil War. Great opulent casting. Horrific action, emotional. Good pacing.
Great period drama movie, superb acting and good cast with some beautiful cinematography. Worth watching
Great period piece movie. All actors are at the top of their game and it builds to a truly impactful ending. A heartbreaking story
Pure and mature at the same time, its an epic love story with great performances (with the exception of PS Hoffman, he was annoying).
Great technical elements but the story itself is a little dry. Great performances too
A strong movie, with good acting, good plot, and outstanding views
Epic story. The atmosphere and tone created are keys to this movies success.
