I am surprised to see that some people do not like this movie. May be they did not get the message this movie is sending. First , this movie wants to give you the sense of the violence and rampage that some stray Union soldiers conducted during the U.S. civil war which has seldom been reported in history. Second , it wants to show you the hardship and misery of those days' women who were left alone , to live and survive by themselves , when their husbands left for war. Third , it wants to convey this message to women , based on movie's currents of events , that , if they are united, resilient and determine, they then can overcome and survive the worst threats. Fourth , it tells women that they must learn everything they need to learn to defend themselves , that is , how to fight , how to shoot , how to plan against intruders and how to rely on themselves to survive. It tells them how to believe in themselves in that they can overcome dangerous situations during the coarse of their lives. I believe the director and scenario writer have done a superb job in conveying this message to its viewers.

Survival of the fittestReviewed byHossein ParsianVote: 8/10
While the gender-based farmhouse siege is suspenseful and bloody, director Daniel Barber weighs in too heavily with extended silences that slow down the goings-on of a film that has darkly lit tension, lovely scenery and fiercely presented ideas ...
I'm not familiar with the source material, but it seems to be very important to some people and it seems to have made an impact on those who read it. As the filmmaker says herself (accompanied by the lead actress), this is a western unlike the ones we are used to see. It's not a showoff and it has female leads, who are strong yet fragile too.
Some might call it feminist, with the a bad stigma, but that would not be a fair assessment. It has female leads as our heroes and there a lot of bad men in this too. But it has the quality to surpass that. And if you don't mind the slow pace this is a really gripping watch. It has it's moments/spikes of violence too, because it's all about survival ...
