"Copperhead" is unlike any Civil War movie to date. A story of the violent passions and burning feuds that set ablaze the home front during the Civil War, "Copperhead" is also a timeless and deeply moving examination of the price of dissent, the place of the individual amidst the hysteria of wartime, and the terrible price of war. Abner Beech is a stubborn and righteous farmer of Upstate New York, who defies his neighbors and his government in the bloody and contentious autumn of 1862. Director Ron Maxwell takes on the War from a stunning, unexpected and richly, unforgettably humanist angle.
