From director Hugh Hudson ("Chariots of Fire," "Greystoke: The Legend of Tarzan") comes a very special film about love and war. Set in the chaotic, emotionally charged days of the Revolutionary War, Academy Award-winner Al Pacino ("Scent of a Woman," "The Godfather") and the object of his obsessive desire, Nastassja Kinski ("Tess," "Cat People") are caught up in the violent and bloody war. "A thrilling vision of our country's birth pangs," exclaims the Los Angeles Times. "No other film has made American history come so alive," praises L.A. Weekly. "A superb, intensely human, beautifully produced, directed film. One of the very best of the year. Absolutely brilliant," (KCBS-TV). Co-starring Golden Globe-winner Donald Sutherland ("A Time to Kill," "Outbreak"), Oscar-nominee Joan Plowright ("Enchanted April"), Steven Berkoff ("War and Remembrance"), and singer-actress Annie Lennox.
