I HATED THIS MOVIE!!! Hated it so much that I wouldn't tolerate more than an hour of it (it lasts 4 hrs). I couldn't get past the Donald Sutherland/Diane Lane pairing. Blah!! It's sooo boring (and I normally LOVE stuff related to the Civil War) but this is SO not worth the time. Good actors: Anne Bancroft, Gwen Verdon, Cicely Tyson, Blythe Danner, etc, but that was the ONLY good thing about the movie.
