Alex Pettyfer and Gabriella Wilde star in this romantic drama directed by Shana Feste.
History as soap. A romantic drama on an epic scale, set against a background of the American Civil War. Enormously costly (made worse by production delays when Clift was involved in a disfiguring car accident), it offers little except looks and a starry cast. Dmytryk, increasingly a journeyman director, failed to overcome the ponderous script about a feisty southern belle (Taylor) who marries a teacher (Clift) only to tire of him.
A movie doomed by its own sumptuousness, it is certainly not the hoped-for echo of Gone With the Wind, and nothing sets the screen alight, not even Atlanta burning.
