An American Story,
This review is from: Cold Mountain [DVD]  (DVD)
Lots of echoes of "Gone with the Wind", which is perhaps not surprising given the subject matter.
A big story like an epic but with a smaller cast. I lost myself in it quite nicely.
I found the ending just a little bit rushed - perhaps the remedy to this is to read the book.
Some of the brutality of war is depicted but I did not find it as harrowing as in "Saving Private Ryan".
