While painting one of the better portraits of Quaker life, the film's sober, Civil War-focused intentions are constantly undermined by slapstick situations and erstwhile tomfoolery.
Exceptional Civil War-set story of religious differences.
In Wyler's Civil War drama, Gary Cooper's most popular film of the 1950s, the star plays his quinessential role, a pacifist family man who needs to probe his soul before using physical violence.
Heartwarming account of Quakers during the Civil War
Warm, gently satiric portrait of a family of the "Friendly persuasion" living in the shadow of the Civil War
does justice neither to Quakerism nor to just-war theory, but its warm affection for its subjects makes it worthwhile viewing.
A big, colorful, entertaining movie that could only have been made in the 1950s.
Gary Cooper brings his usual dull self into a film about a righteous man who doesn't want to do battle during the Civil War. It likely would have been picked up a notch if a Gregory Peck had have been chosen. Instead we must endure.
This movie is very predictable, and sometimes boring, but the drama is pretty intense, especially towards the end, and there are good actors in this movie too.
This film is about a family of Quakers who struggle with their beliefs during the Civil War. It's interesting to see how the Quakers lived and their religious beliefs. The film goes into great detail on this and you realize how horrible it would be to be a Quaker. At times the movie is too cute with too many rear projections(the CGI of the 50's) The acting is great (Cooper does his aw shucks character) and the story is a good one. The film gets real good when the war is in their back yard and they must choose between protecting themselves or follow their religion and do nothing.
Lovely small quite film
