“Copperhead is a glowing, luxuriant tale of love and conflict – a Romeo and Juliet for the American Civil War, where loyalty and liberty tear a small town and two families to pieces. Here is the Civil War as it was fought, not on the battlefields, but in the hearts of the American people. Gorgeously filmed, a pastoral idyll.”
