Carmen and Fort McCoy
I have to admit--I was disappointed. It was really cool seeing the buildings on Fort McCoy and the Wisconsin farmland and landscapes. But the screenplay wasn't very well done. The actress that played the wife was also the director and screenplay writer. She played the role of her great grandmother in the movie. The screenplay was written in a way that was fairly superficial. I'm sure she wrote is as she heard the stories growing up. She didn't know the characters so she didn't know how to develop them and what happened to them very well.
I found a review after I watched it that pretty much summed up what Bill and I had thought about the movie. Some of the reviews were a little more kind to the movie than this one. But I think this was pretty spot on. "Fort McCoy" review
