Feels like a made-for-TV movie with subpar writing and acting July 13 2013
By Paul Allaer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
Imagine my surprise when out of the blue this movie showed up this weekend at my local art-house theatre here in Cincinnati without any pre-release fanfare or advertizing. I didn't know much about the movie, but the premise sounded possibly intruiging and the cast gave me some confidence too.

"War Flowers" (2013 release; 100 min.) brings the story of Sarabeth (played by Christina Ricci) and her young daughter Melody somewhere in the South during the Civil War. As the movie opens, we get thrown right away in the thick of a major battle between North and South. After that, we see Sarabeth and Melody anxiously awaiting news from Sarabeth's husband, who is fighting for the Confederate Army. When finally a letter arrives, it is from Sarabeth's brother, informing her that he has not seen or heard anything about her husband. Meanwhile, we also get to know Louis McIntire (played by Jason Gedrick), an officer in the Union Army, and his dad Gen. McIntire (played by Tom Berenger). Louis has already lost 2 brothers in the war, and his dad, in keeping a promise to his wife/Louis' mother, has decided to send Louis back home to Philadelphia. Louis reluctantly agrees, but at the last minute (just as the train is about to leave), he disobeys his dad and returns to the battlefield, with disastrous results as he gets hurt badly, is left behind for dead and is found by Sarabeth. At this point, we are a good 35-40 min. into the movie. Will Sarabeth's husband return home? What will Sarabeth do with Louis? To tell you more would ruin the plot for you.

Couple of comments: first and foremost, as well intented as the movie seems to be, it was pretty painful to watch, to be honest. The overall feeling I got while watching this in the theatre is that this was some medicore made-for-TV movie, with subpar writing (Gen. McIntire to his son: "You will live, I command it!"), subpar acting (my oh my, whas has become of Christina Ricci?), and subpar production (in the battle scenes, you see soldiers flying through the air when "hit" by a cannon shot, they sure didn't miss their trampoline jump-off!), etc. The acting performances left me most bewildered of all, as surely Ricci and Berenger have talent but it is nowhere to be seen in this movie. Bottom line, in all honesty I simply cannot recommend this movie. Viewer beware.

Emotional Aug. 19 2013
By megan - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
I really enjoyed this movie. Christina Ricci & Jason Gedrick worked well together. Always liked both of them. The child actor in this movie was amazing as well and so adorable. The story line was solid & characters well developed. All in all a great movie, though very sad at times. The ending really shocked me. Don't want to spoil it for those who haven't seen it yet, so I won't elaborate. Glad I purchased it. I know I'll watch it again in the future.

Lots of Potential, A Tad Stagey, but Good Actors Aug. 5 2013
By mk - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
A bit strange and melodramatic, it feels like a Hallmark made for TV movie but harsher; yet, I found it watchable and waited to see the outcome of it's characters.

Christina Ricci plays a war weary Southern woman who along with her wise, ever hopeful 7 year old daughter(amazingly well acted by Gabrielle Popa), wait for the uncertain return of their soldier husband and father from the Civil War. The war is nearing it's end; A Union captain(Gedrick) is wounded and nursed back to life by Ricci's character while his father(Berenger), a general, searches for him.

The war rages around the young woman's home as she struggles to survive against thieves, a near rapist, skirmishes on her front lawn, starvation and the growing fear that her husband's not returning. She runs out of options and would most likely give up except for the persistent spirit of her daughter.

The staged battle scenes are set-ups to show the horrors that inflict on the common folk stuck in the middle of a nightmare and also, to act as the backdrop for a budding romance as the woman cares for and hides an enemy soldier(also see "Civil Love").

These are good actors in a budget, B-type film that really wants to be more than it is. It had limited filming time, and there is weakness in the script, e.g., they don't develop the romance, it just kind of happens quickly; however, I still appreciate the work they do with what they have.

*SPOILER ALERT* They put in a good but tragic twist near the end that caught me unawares, but the story ends on a positive note with a hopeful future for mother and daughter. After so much trauma, I needed that ending. *END ALERT*

PG-13, some blood, lots of threatening situations, but no nudity or language, not for kids. The extras feature an interview with Tom Berenger.

For sake of the story-she slowly falls in love with the man Jan. 26 2015
By GJ - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
It's been about a month from when i watched this.But wanted to give it,it's credit.In a nut shell.A southern mother and daughter,are propelled into the middle of Civil War.When there farm.becomes a battlefield .The mother is loyal to the south,but when she finds a wounded yank in her basement.She can't turn him away or kill him.For sake of the story-she slowly falls in love with the man..while trying to hold onto being a devoted wife.Her daughter also warms up too the injured man.If you want a action based Civil War movie don't get this(maybe tops 15 mins of conflict).If you want a heart felt drama.About a lone mother , trying to do whats right,and wondering if her husband will have a farm to come home too.This might be for you.And,although it is not presented as such,there is a ghost element too. Ricci +Civil War back drop+ low price on amz(at time).Made this a good choice and its effort put in made it.An enjoyable film.

Entertaining struggle for survival in terrible times. May 23 2014
By dhart - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
A different role for Christina Ricci who does a good job as Confederate wife whose husband is away in the war and is struggling to survive with her young daughter. She finds herself caring for a wounded Federal officer and hiding him after a battle in her front yard. Feelings grow between her and the officer as time goes by. While it has a weak story line, the acting is good.
