Legends of the Fall

The sweeping, melodramatic saga of three brothers, their powerful father, and a beautiful woman, the popular period drama Legends of the Fall presents a romanticized view of rugged masculinity against lush Montana scenery. Based on a novel by Jim Harrison, the film covers decades in the lives of Alfred (Aidan Quinn), Tristan (Brad Pitt), and Samuel (Henry Thomas) Ludlow, the sons of retired military man William Ludlow (Anthony Hopkins). Raised by the unorthodox Ludlow after the departure of their mother, the boys grow up close, sharing an appreciation of the land and a pioneering spirit. The family becomes divided, however, when young Sam enlists in World War I over his father's objections, and his brothers follow suit to protect him. Despite these efforts, Sam dies in battle, leaving Alfred and Tristan to return home and deal with the lingering torment. Further complicating matters is the presence of Sam's beautiful fiancée, Susannah (Julia Ormond). After Sam's death, she attracts the romantic attention of both the responsible Alfred and the brooding Tristan, a conflict that threatens to drive the brothers apart. Aspiring to epic status, the film utilizes period detail and attractive landscapes as a backdrop for tragic, doomed romance. While some critics complained that the film resembled a romance novel writ, veering at times into the overwrought, audiences embraced the combination of emotion and grand historical scale, making the film a box-office success.

This is the multilayered, complex romance that put Brad Pitt into the names business of highly charismatic leading male roles, which is for better or for worse. Ugly World War 1 comes along and irrevocably changes them forever in this romance with the beautiful Julia Ormond pulling off a dazzling performance. Like many Americans of that age, the family became bootleggers into one of our country most complicated political controversies. An American family in the American century where the director didn't cow tail to the usual soap opera type plot.

This is one of those movies that everyone should watch. I loved the plot and the character. This movie has just about every emotion in it. It pulls you into the early 1900 century.

Beautiful movie. I will never forget it. The tragedy of human emotion is especially powerful in this film. Wonderful acting, terrific scenery, and a beautiful soundtrack. You will not regret watching it.

Being a fan of Sir Anthony Hopkins, I couldn't miss this movie; I decided to 'endure' it for the sake of the actors (I have heard before of it, being a poor soap-opera). It was devastating. So full of feelings, one of the few movies that determine man to think. A tipical little town, 3 ordinary soldiers, their drama, feelings and lives. Not any other rubbish, without brave warriors (ex: Steven Segal), simple and realistic, beautiful to watch, yet unknown and underestimated; if you read this and have never seen the movie, try it. I doubt you will be disappointed.

Ed Zwick (Glory, The Siege, Courage Under Fire) directs an all-star cast in this tale set in the early 1900’s about three brothers who fall for the same woman. Col. Ludlow (Anthony Hopkins) retired from the Army after his disagreements with the U.S. Government over the policies regarding the treatment of Indians and moved his family to Montana and away from what he called “The Madness”. He raises his three sons Alfred (Aidan Quinn), Tristan (Brad Pitt) and Samuel (Henry Thomas) on a sprawling ranch and they grow up with the benefits of a classical education and a deep felt desire to live to please their father. Now grown men, Samuel comes home from school with his fiancé, Susanna Fincannon (Julia Ormond) in tow. The brutality of WWI reaches home through an article in a weeks old newspaper and Samuel decides to enlist in the Canadian Army to fight. Alfred goes with him in agreement over what’s going on and Tristan decides to go to watch over his two brothers because it is their Father’s unspoken request. When tragedy hits, the family is broken to pieces and may not recover from the pain. Beautiful camera work and a dramatic story make this film a keeper. So does the impressive ending when Tristan finally meets up with the Bear. R- Language, Violence, Nudity and Sexual Content
