Heard you shoot. What was it?
Somethin' small n' fast.
Maybe. I don't know if it was even really there. Once that gun goes off, everythin' livin' is gone.
Why's it so hard when the only thing there is you and the rabbit?

I like this movie and i'm surprised some feel differently towards it. It was cool to see the war coming from a woman's perspective and show the horrors of the woman trying to defend their home and themselves.
It showed how at the end of the Civil War that it was violent and it also showed women didn't have much respect. We noticed that it showed not only the woman's perspective but the man's as well.
Many could say they view this movie differently but I viewed it as showing how strong women were in this time period and to show the destruction the Civil War caused.
I personally recommend this movie for learning purposes as well as to get an insight on the different perspectives of the Civil War.
