Gods and Generals
We got the movie Gods and Generals this week and watched it last night. We loved that it was clean, although the action was a little slow. It's also very long - over 3 hours. What I loved the most was the portrayal of General Stonewall Jackson's love for his wife. The scenes of them together were wonderful; they got the message across that this couple was deeply in love without showing the details of their intimacy on the screen. I also loved that both General Lee and General Jackson were shown to be truly spiritual men without their being ridiculed. Both men were well-respected by their peers and those under their command. It was wonderful to watch a movie that was clean and portrayed the main characters as godly men. We want more!
