| Great Film - over-emoting at points, but overall good.
When I saw this being rebroadcast on Ovation (part of the Trio/Oxygen genre cable channels), I was surprised to see a younger William Shatner doing what he's always done best - overacting and over-emoting. At the same time, I felt that it was done with pure intentions, and was an overall stellar performance. With the action pretty much all taking place in one room (with some shots outside the courtroom), it really did a great job of depicting the events in Andersonville, and would be a great compliment to the Andersonville mini-series that was aired a few years ago. If I see this available on video/DVD in the near future, I am definitely going to pick it up.
