This film calls into question the class system that was prevalent in the Northeast in the 1840s, specifically the anti-rent war. It takes a bit to get going; however, this is an exciting film. The acting is some of the best that I've seen from these two actors. It's based on a novel. A clear copy of this film is available on Youtube.
