5.0 out of 5 stars Biting commentary, January 15, 2006
This review is from: 1776 (Restored Director's Cut) (DVD)
My children and I have been watching this over and over again. This movie is more than just a musical-about-history-and-patriotism. It has a very clear and at times uncomfortable message about concern for human rights and justice vs. greed and (yes) "property as a bad word". As Hancock hints to Dickinson, the "right-winger", those who support the British empire were in fact motivated more by support of the "half-crown" than of the Crown. "Cool, cool considerate men" could be sung by the Republicans in Congress today. Adams is the true hero here, and a role-model to those of us who care less about being "obnoxious and disliked" than about overcoming tyranny, including by our own government. I recommend this as much for the political message as for the song and dance.
