Poster Rating: –

Review: There was no poster immediately available for my review. Should one become available in the future, this section will be updated.

Trailer Rating: B-

Review: The story has interesting potential, but the trailer barely gives that concept life. The whole thing looks hopelessly generic, when it shouldn’t feel that way at all.

Oscar Prospects:

It has the feel of a Civil War escape drama that could gain the Academy’s attention, but there are no major names involved and the early release would suggest that it’s not a likely contender.

Trailer #1
