GREAT MOVIE. GIVES YOU INSITE TO WHAT LIFE WAS LIKE BACK THEN.

Time Out New York
Given Maxwell’s dry style and fixation on 19th-century vernacular, the result is less like a peering examination of the turbulent political environment than a reenactment of a Ken Burns documentary—or a museum tour. Full Review

Copperhead has a more accurate period look, but dramatically it’s inert. Full Review
John DeFore
The Hollywood Reporter
Named for a slur used against Northerners who opposed waging war on the South, the film works best when focused on Abner Beech (Billy Campbell), whose conscience-driven minority opinion makes him a pariah in his upstate New York village. Full Review
Justin Chang
Variety
Director Ron Maxwell’s adaptation of Harold Frederic’s 1893 novel elicits a certain amount of admiration for its old-fashioned carpentry and earnest, worthy approach, but its stilted dramaturgy and endless speechifying defeat the committed efforts of a sprawling ensemble. Full Review
Kerry Lengel
Arizona Republic
It’s a maudlin, meandering bit of moviemaking that sheds little light on the loyal opposition in the North. Full Review
