| A Touching Story
I first found out about this film through a review I stumbled upon on YouTube; curious about the storyline, I downloaded it on Amazon.com and after watching this film, I am forever grateful that I found it.

After watching so many mainstream films that seem to follow the same formula and that concentrate on plots containing extreme violence, profanity, or gratuitous sex, it was refreshing to watch My Brother's War. The plot line was based on a subject that was obviously close to the writer/director's heart and I believe that, through this passion, the best films are made. The emotions in the film were raw and real, and the actors involved (especially between the main characters Virginia and Grace/Henry) had great chemistry. You can tell that this film was made with care, passion, and...love.

One thing I appreciate about My Brother's War is that it concentrates not only on a personal story of the American Civil War, but it also displays a part of the war that not everyone realizes was fact: That women fought as men on the front lines. Furthermore, I also appreciate that the film concentrates on an unexpected love, a love that is transforming, real, and nondiscriminatory, as it should be.

My Brother's War resonates with emotions that are easily understandable, ranging from joy and relief, to sorrow and fear, to love and anger. The story is very real and well executed, and I am grateful to have "stumbled" upon this gem of a film.
