Towards the end of the American Civil War, sisters Augusta (Marling) and Louise (Steinfeld) and their African-American slave Mad (Otaru) are forced to defend their homestead from two violent Union soldiers (Worthington and Dennehy). Writer Hart celebrates sisterhood, cunning and visceral determination and Barber ensures that even the most harrowing moments aren’t exploitative. Wonderful stuff.
