Miss Lady, We must be livin' right. We got comp'ny...

"Those are among the first lines we hear from Cicely Tyson in this wonderful movie.

I freely admit that I'm a sap for old movies and old things and old times. And perhaps that's why I love this movie so much. It opens at the beginning of the 20th Century, the early 1900s. As someone who's written a couple architecture books about this period of time, I'm happy to say that the historical aspects of the movie all looked good, so I was able to just relax and enjoy the flick.

We all think that the early 1900s were a simpler time and place but this movie presents a more honest view of history, particularly as it relates to women's issues. One of the minor plot lines presents the story of a woman who has lost her children forever because she sought a divorce. Another poignant scene is where Lucy (lead character) gives up on life after a tragedy in the family.

Laying in bed, she chews on crayons and tells her husband (Donald Southerland) that she's only "fuzz on a pillow." (BTW, crayons in those days contained lead, giving them a taste not unlike sweet tarts and said to be highly addictive. That's what I loved about this movie; it got the details right.)

I've watched this movie about 20 times and even though I've memorized many of the lines, I still cry and laugh and feel touched, stirred and inspired. I love the acting, the setting, the story, the beauty, the love affair between the old "Cap'n" and his beautiful young wife. It's believable, endearing and captivating.

The acting is first rate, too. I recommend this movie 100%.

"This was better than what I expected. I had read the book, and with a few very minor exceptions I think this rendition is just about as close to the original story (the *complete* original story) as any book based movie I've seen."
Must See!

"This movie falls in the catagory with some of the great ones like "Driving Miss Daisy", "Fried Green Tomatoes" and "Steel Magnolias".
It's not just a Civil War experience but a life experience and will keep you glued to the screen! I love this kind of movie and rate it as one of the my all time favorites."
