If you love Georgia Traveler, then go see Robert Redford's upcoming film "The Conspirator." Why? Because, "A" it's about the Civil War, which we are featuring this season on the show and, "B" it was shot in Savannah. They made the city and Fort Pulaski look like Washington, D.C. in 1865. So pretty. I saw it over the weekend and loved it. It arrives in theaters in April. Here's a quick article by the Associated Press:

Robert Redford's Abraham Lincoln assassination drama "The Conspirator" has been picked up for theatrical distribution by Lionsgate and Roadside Attractions.

The two companies aim for a spring 2011 release for "The Conspirator," which premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival.

The $20 million production directed by Redford was one of the biggest films to enter the festival without a distributor already in place.

"The Conspirator" stars Robin Wright as Mary Surratt, a boarding-house owner tried as an accomplice in the assassination by John Wilkes Booth. James McAvoy plays a Union Civil War hero reluctantly forced to defend her.

The film co-stars Kevin Kline, Evan Rachel Wood, Alexis Bledel, Tom Wilkinson and Justin Long.
