"An instant-classic Western..."
– Richard Brody, The New Yorker
"...takes us back into the everyday lives of such a troubled time period without feeling heavy-handed or manipulative."
– Meredith Alloway, The Daily Buzz
"A darkly comedic but historically accurate look at two brothers whose escalating pranks are interrupted by the Civil War."
– Jeremy Kay, Screen Daily

Synopsis

Most Americans predict that the Civil War will end by Christmas, but Henry (Tim Morton) and Francis Mellon (David Maloney) couldn't care less. Bracing for another winter on their struggling farm in rural Kentucky, the brothers have become suffocatingly close. Francis' practical jokes become more and more aggressive until the night he accidentally injures Henry in a drunken fight. After humiliating himself in front of a daughter (Rachel Korine) of the town's preeminent family, Henry disappears in the night. Months later, Francis learns that Henry has joined the Union army, and the two are left to find out separately what the approaching war will bring.

Bryan Pfleeger - Customer Review
A small but surprisingly realistic feeling Civil War drama about two brothers and the effect that the war has on their lives.Features powerful performances by the leads who feel completely natural. Add to it great production design and you have a film that shows what can be done with hard work and a small budget. A triumph for the entire company and a great offering from the folks at Film Movement
