It was a fine film. I was more impressed by the film than the book, actually. They could have improved the casting, but that's true of almost every Civil War film I've ever seen. Actually, it speaks well of the music that it does not jump out at you. It shouldn't; the film was not about the music. I heard T-Bone on the radio, twice, explaining that the music is actually rock, and that he did not want to make "another folk music film." Which is o.k., they had serious professionals writing the tunes.
