Ride With The Devil: The Criterion Collection

With this new director's cut, Ang Lee reconstructs his original vision for his Civil War epic, Ride With The Devil, an intimate, harrowing look at a country torn in half, told from a daringly unorthodox perspective. Set in 1862, during the Kansas-Missouri border war, the film stars Tobey Maguire as Jake and Skeet Ulrich as his friend Jack Bull; they join the Confederate-sympathizing

Bushwhackers after Jack's father is killed by marauding members of the abolitionist Jayhawkers. But Ride With The Devil is also the story of their unusual ally Holt (an astonishing Jeffrey Wright), who's fighting for the South despite being a former slave. A rumination on identity and loyalty, both political and personal, Ride With The Devil is a provocative challenge to preconceptions about America's bloodiest conflict.
