SYNOPSIS

It is the fourth year of the War for Independence. The enemy is not only the British—Americans are also fighting among themselves. Mary Silliman’s town of Fairfield, Connecticut, is bitterly divided between patriots and tories, those still loyal to the King of England. Mary is at odds with her husband, Selleck, a fierce patriot and prominent State’s Attorney, for prosecuting old friends and neighbors and harshly applying revolutionary justice. When Selleck is kidnapped and held for ransom, Mary sets in motion a dangerous plot to win his freedom.


REVIEWS

Mary Silliman’s War has been uniformly recognized as among the best films or televison programs ever made about the Revolutionary War.

“This beautifully filmed and historically accurate film is a wrenching tale of war through the eyes of one woman.” Chicago Sun-Times

“ This (three star) film quietly yet powerfully addresses such issues as women’s roles and the ambiguities of way.” TV Guide – National Review

“By a very wide margin, (it) is the most compelling film or play ever produced about the American Revolution” John Murrin, Professor of History, Princeton University

“ A personal film that shows how to connect with the revolution.” The Seattle Intelligencer

“Mary Silliman’s War sets its character in a historic diorama that works to stirring effect.” The Hollywood Reporter

“This fact-based drama set in the American Revolution is a jewel.” Milwaukee Journal

“Superb in every way—visually, dramatically, historically.” Patricia Bonomi, Professor of History, New York University

"The authenticity shows in gorgeous misty shots of the town, riverside and country, and in portrait-come-to-life images of townspeople...It shows in the faithful re-creation of 18th century buildings, furniture and music." Los Angeles Times

“Movies set during the Revolutionary War are a pretty rare breed on TV…Mary Silliman’s War is a rare treat.” Daytona News-Journal

“Incomparably the best film on the American Revolution. Nothing else even comes close.” Fred Anderson, Professor of History, University of Colorado

"It has all the makings of a box-office hit--a pregnant wife facing the perils of war alone, a kidnapping, a counter-kidnapping." Connecticut Post.
