period piece

Savannah is based on a true story of Ward Allen, a guy who inherits a plantation early in the 20th century. Ward studies in Europe and then moves back to Savannah and teams up with a freed slave named Christmas. The team become hunters of fowl and sell their birds in town. A period piece in which Ward is presented as a unusual rich man, who is ignorant to the racial tones of the times and is insensitive to the law, women,and property. There is not enough drama  in this two hour movie.
