3.5/4 

An involving drama, with some great performances from the three leads. It's a long sprawling epic that never once felt boring. Though, watching in two parts does help. What sets this film apart from similar titles like 'Gone With the Wind' is the portrayal of the themes encompassed within the story. Bigotry towards races and sexes, evolving society of a growing America, differences in lifestyle and ideology, and family relations through hardship. All of these points come through best in the smaller moments. It's quite entertaining.

This epic narrative is an acting clinic, full of nuances and subtle moments of pure emotion. It's a long film, spanning many years of storytelling and, occasionally, that makes for some slower moments. There are some truly bombastic scenes that pack enough firepower to keep the film interesting, though.

[Update: Good!] What an epic this is. I believe it spans two generations. It has an all star cast with Taylor, Hudson and Dean topping the list. The length brings it down some, but it is way better on split viewings.
