The Keeping Room
Directed by Daniel Barber
In this radically reimagined American Western set towards the end of the Civil War, Southerner Augusta encounters two renegade, drunken soldiers who are on a mission of pillage and violence. After escaping an attempted assault, Augusta races back to the isolated farmhouse that she shares with her sister Louise and their female slave Mad. When the pair of soldiers track Augusta down intent on exacting revenge, the trio of women are forced to take up arms to fend off their assailants, finding ways to resourcefully defend their home––and themselves––as the escalating attacks become more unpredictable and relentless.
In this radically reimagined American Western set towards the end of the Civil War, three Southern women are forced to take up arms to defend their home––and themselves––from two renegade Union soldiers on Sherman's March.
Cast: Brit Marling, Hailee Steinfeld
I felt as If was living in it. Excellent movie. The stories of the southern people trying to put their lives together after the war were heartbreaking. It affected all the lives of the south. The traditions the south has to this day carries us all from the devastation of war, from rich to poor, black and white, and one of the reasons southern people have a great bond with one another. It has built strong character in many a southerner and this movie portrayed this in these 3 women. Well done.
Great show good actor's
Did not expect the ending. Excellent.
Just watch it. This is real art. Lets us see the horrors of both sides of the war from the eyes of three women. No one was right in the civil war, slavery was a monster, the confederates were monsters, the yankees were monsters.
