Tagline: The nations heart was touched by....

Plot: Gods and Generals, the screen adaptation of Jeff Shaara’s heralded best-selling novel and prequel to the acclaimed drama Gettysburg, is an epic and sweeping portrayal of a nation divided at the start of the Civil War. Beginning in early l861 and continuing through l863, just prior to the Battle of Gettysburg, the film illuminates heroes from both sides of the war, such as Colonel Joshua Lawrence Chamberlain (JEFF DANIELS), a professor at Maine’s Bowdoin College who gave up a promising academic career to enlist in the Union army, then went on to become one of the North’s finest military leaders; Confederate Generals Robert E. Lee (ROBERT DUVALL), a distinguished 25-year veteran of the United States Army and native Virginian, forced to choose between allegiance to his country and loyalty to his home; and Thomas “Stonewall” Jackson (STEPHEN LANG), a devoutly religious man whose faith and courage made him an outstanding soldier and Lee’s most trusted lieutenant.

The tremendous suffering and bravery of the Civil War was not confined to the battlefields. Gods and Generals vividly brings to life not only the Civil War’s legendary leaders, but also the legions of anonymous soldiers and citizens who fought passionately and courageously for their vision of freedom

 External Reviews
external linkRunning at 231 minutes (with a much-needed intermission halfway through), this ponderous production has the cheap and grubby feel of a low-budget TV movie, something that not even the presence of stars such as Duvall (underused) and Jeff Daniels (unconvincing) can disguise. 1/5
