Product Description

Item specifics Condition: Brand New: An item that has never been opened or removed from the manufacturer’s sealing. Title: Gods & Generals Gettysburg Format: DVD Genre: Action, Adventure Release Date: 01/02/2007 Leading Role: Stephen Lang, Tom Berenger, Robert Duvall, Martin Sheen, Jeff Daniels Rating: PG-13 Director: Ronald F. Maxwell Detailed item info GODS AND GENERALS: This epic film from writer-director Ron Maxwell chronicles the early events of the American Civil War. It's a prequel to his earlier GETTYSBURG, with some of the same cast, and is part of a planned trilogy. Stephen Lang plays Thomas "Stonewall" Jackson, the famous (and deeply religious) Confederate general who, along with fellow General Robert E. Lee (Robert Duvall), must weigh the mighty consequences of his actions, as each battle costs the lives of thousands of men. Over on the Union side there's Jeff Daniels as Colonel Joshua Chamberlain, who, like Jackson and Lee, is fond of making poetic speeches to his troops. Beginning with the start of the war and ending with Jackson's death at Chancellorsville, the film chronicles the three main battles leading up to Gettysburg, using their actual locations.

I portrayed a Union corporal in the 11th Corps for the Chancellorsville scene and must admit that it was quite an experience. Maxwell pays careful attention to authentic period detail as he chronicles the intricacies of the generals' domestic lives in the intervals between the harrowing battle scenes. For Stephen Lang’s portrayal of Stonewall Jackson, many felt his performance was worthy of an Oscar nomination. While a little on the long side, the end result should serve as an invaluable document for history buffs.

Mogul Ted Turner was an executive producer and appears in a small role. GETTYSBURG: The film is a sweeping production depicting the immediate events that led up to the Battle of Gettysburg and the three-day battle itself, which claimed tens of thousands of lives, turned the tide of the Civil War, and eventually would reunite the North and the South. An excellent production illuminating the horrors and heroes of this uniquely idealistic war, the film boasts terrific performances from Jeff Daniels, Tom Berenger, and Martin Sheen. The screenplay was based on the best-selling novel THE KILLER ANGELS by Michael Shaara. Product Details Number of Discs: 2 Film Country: USA Rating: PG-13 UPC: 012569829411
