Ron Maxwell’s first two films set in the American Civil War — Gettysburg and Gods and Generals — are about the men who fought that war. His third, the forthcoming Copperhead, is about the men and women who didn’t think it should be fought.
You’re going to want to see it — the story is compelling, the production values look outstanding and it features a stellar cast including Billy Campbell, Angus McFadyen and Peter Fonda — but historical dramas, especially antiwar historical dramas, need a bit more “audience push” onto local screens. Help the makers of Copperhead, and help yourself and your movie-viewing friends, by “demanding” the movie in your town:
- Go to http://copperhead.demandthemovie.com/;
- Enter your email address and ZIP code (or “demand” using Facebook);
- Share with others.
