||Synopsis: SAVANNAH is the true story of Ward Allen, a romantic and bombastic character who rejects his plantation heritage for the freedom of life on a river. Ward navigates the change of early 20th century America on the wrong side of the law and society, his loyal friend, a freed slave named Christmas Moultrie, at his side. Master of Shakespeare, and the shotgun that provides Savannah's markets with fowl, Ward fights for his rights as a hunter. His charisma and eloquent rhetoric win the heart of a society woman who defies her father to marry him. An elderly Moultrie tells the story of life on the river with his friend to a little boy, who passes the legendary Ward Allen down to the next generation. Written by Anonymous

This is based upon a true story.
Ward Allen (Jim Caviezel) gives up the privileged life on a plantation
in Savannah, GA to live free on the river so he can hunt ducks.
We start off in 1954 where Christmas Moultrie (Chiwetel Ejiofor) - the
last of the free slaves from the Moultrie plantation - tells of his
relationship with Ward Allen decades before. Then we go to 1918 and see
We have an all-star cast with Hal Holbrook as Judge Harden; Sam Shepard
as Mr. Stubbs who is the father of Lucy (Jaimie Alexander), who
eventually marries Ward Allen; and Bradley Whitford as Jack Cay, a
lawyer, who is the listener - and eventual writer of this story - to
Christmas and his stories of Ward Allen.
I suppose we are all wondering what there was about Ward Allen to have
a movie made of his life so-to -speak and further
why would he give
up a life of privilege to roam the woods and the river just to hunt and
shoot ducks? We must listen and believe, as true, the stories Christmas
tells about his friend. And, you must come to know that this friendship
was pure gold.
However, this is quite sketchy. We have 3-stories and any one of which
could have carried this movie, but it was decided to provide a little
something of all three. It is difficult to incorporate everything
especially when all three stories have a lot to say. We see Ward's
relationship with his wife and this almost turned into a love story,
but later that was abandoned; then we see his battles with new
government rules and regulations regarding his disregarding them that
got him to the courts many times (he didn't believe in quotas for the
number of ducks killed or the shooting of a certain type of "protected"
duck); then we have the relationship with Christmas and this is where
the story should have been centered. It is with this angle that a great
legend could have materialized. But, we get only bits and pieces here.
It was decided to tell all three stories, sketchy as they might be,
..well, Ward Allen was "a hell of a man's man" and we do get
this perspective from the movie. Maybe that was the point of all this.
The acting all around is very good. The best and lighter moments in the
movie involve Ward Allen in court with Judge Harden who has a
propensity to overlook Allen's transgressions as we can clearly see
that Judge Harden is most impressed with Ward Allen, who by the way was
Oxford educated and spouted Shakespeare often. Throughout there are
good lines that provide some chuckles.
The cinematography is outstanding regarding the Savannah River
background. The ending is somewhat confusing because the movie cannot
tell us what really happened to Ward Allen or his wife after his wife
was sent to a rest home.
But, to answer the question why abandon the good life for a life of
hunting ducks on the Savannah River in Ward Allen's words: The river
belongs to us and we to it. It was the only place he felt really free
and that was most important to him. (7/10)
Violence: No. Sex: Not really, we see more of a make-out session with
his wife. Nudity: No. Language: No.
