A true rosy romance!
Movie Lover: A college professor

A wonderful family film. My favorite Civil War movie and one of my favorite romantic films. It is not a romantic comedy (as labeled on some sites) but a thought-provoking look at the nature of human decency, moral courage, and the foundations of human affection.
Finally, this movie is available on DVD! As a reminder of where we've been (as a nation) and where we're going, the film will be shown each year in the film and politics course I teach at a public university.
Post Script: "Romance" was Janet Leigh's first Hollywood movie. Later, she wrote that while the movie was being filmed, there was a magical feeling in the air. Viewers will have no trouble seeing why!
