Movie I dig 019: The Conspirator (2010)

The Consipirator is the first film produced by The American Film Company, and they are off to a good start. The American Film Company’s goal is to accurately make films based on true events from American history. Sounds like a nice breath of fresh air amongst most other Hollywood productions.

As a European, I wished I knew more about the history of the American Civil War, while watching this movie – even though all the events in the film take place right after the Civil War. Nonetheless, I knew enough to be able to follow and – most importantly – enjoy the movie. Coming home after having seen it, I started to surf the web to find out more about the events in the Civil War and the events in the movie in particular.

The movie itself seems like a realistic story of how the events could have been. And  – for me, not knowing how things would turn out – it was an exciting ride all the way to the end. I love how the CGI guys recreated a historical version of DC. The acting is quite good, but I didn’t expect anything other from a fine cast like this one.

So all in all a quite good film and I’m excited to see what else they will produce in the years to come.
