An all-around excellent film about the struggles of a African-American regiment during the Civil War. Superb acting is present from all parties involved, and knowing this is based on a true story makes it that much more engaging. This movie should satisfy history and great movie buffs alike.
GLORY recounts the bravery of a group of Civil War soldiers often overlooked by history--the 54th Regiment of Massachusetts, a troop of free black men who fought to help win liberty for their enslaved brothers.
Based on the historical novels ONE GALLANT RUSH by Peter Burchand and LAY THIS LAUREL by Lincoln Kirstein and the letters of Robert Gould Shaw.
