Audience Reviews for The Howards of Virginia


A good cast and handsome production but there wasn't enough of drama to the Revolutionary War they had to throw in a family soap opera too?

This was on very late the other night, so I watched most of it, but I didn't get to see the end, I was too tired. Grant is energetic and sexy in this historic film of a man who is pursuing his dreams in America, and the wife from an aristocratic background that conflicts with his lifestyle. I liked this movie so far, but I really need to see how it ends, I hope they play it again sometime.
