Customer Review

on 21 September 2005
I missed this film at the cinema but since I work in a library I was able to rent it for free! I knew it was going to be good with the likes of Kidman and Zellweger but I was genuinely impressed with the film on almost every level. First of all it looks amazing with not only beautiful scenery but gruesomely realistic battle scenes. The director has dealt sensitively with some of the more horrific moments, such as the rape of Natalie Portman's character and the murder of Sally's husband and children, effectively conveying the absolute lawlessness and lack of humanity in the Civil War era. Certainly not a way to learn about the war in detail and the story isn't based on real events but you really get the feeling it could have happened. For me the star of the show was Renée Zellweger who created a fully-rounded character who was equally strong and vulnerable and offered humour in what is essentially a bleak but brilliant film.
