Directed by John Sayles | 1987

With Chris Cooper, James Earl Jones, Mary McDonnell

"A film with the sweetness and simplicity of an Appalachian ballad."
—New York Times

Gorgeously photographed by the great Haskell Wexler (Days of Heaven), this stirring historical saga dramatizes a 1920 coal miners’ strike in West Virginia—a collective uprising that culminated in a tense and bloody showdown. With an authentic sense of regional Americana, director John Sayles’ vivid drama has the mythic power of a classical Western and the simple poetry of a folk tale.
