|Leonard Maltin/Plot synopsis:
Gere returns to his home in the post-war South, after six years' imprisonment during the Civil War, but his wife can't quite believe he's the same man she married. Sumptuously designed and photographed (in Virginia), this is the kind of film that takes you to another time and place, but despite strong performances, the characters remain aloof--and so does their plight. Executive produced by Gere. Remake of the French hit THE RETURN OF MARTIN GUERRE. Panavision.
