Rated NR 141 minutes 1924

D.W. Griffith's 1925 Revolutionary War epic is his most Dickensian film, both in its Victorian morality and its precise narrative structure. The family unit, the usual center of value in Griffith's work, here takes on new dimensions as the final shot transforms George Washington into a hauntingly literal "father" of his country.
