In this inspired story of tragedy, love and loss, WAR FLOWERS stars Christina Ricci, Tom Berenger, Jason Gedrick and Bren Foster. It's North Carolina in 1863, and the Civil War is raging. Young mother Sarabeth Ellis (Ricci) and her precocious seven-year-old daughter Melody are struggling to survive the war on their farm. With the youngest lost to scarlet fever and her Confederate soldier husband away fighting the war, Sarabeth's spirit is severely tested. When a battle crosses family land and a Union soldier (Gedrick) is left wounded, she can’t abandon him to die—and an unlikely bond is forged between them in the midst of despair. As the war winds down, so does her hope for her husband's safe return. Hungry and broken, they have endured as much as humanly possible. Then the promise of a new life—and new love—appears on the horizon.

Outstanding film. A solid depiction of the reality of that conflict.

I quit watching when a late-term pregnant woman appeared in public and a child was presented with a Teddy bear, decades before Theodore Roosevelt was born. fail.
