Friendly Persuasion (1956)

November 1956137 minutes

A Quaker family's idyllic life is torn by the family members' strong, conflicting beliefs--nonviolence, justice, truth and respect for individuality--as each confronts the approaching United States Civil War with Friendly Persuasion. Academy Award winner Gary Cooper stars as a father trying to hold his family together and remain true to his deeply held conviction that there is that of God in everyone.

Now, each member of his family must choose between nonviolence and the fight to end slavery as the Civil War comes to their Southern Indiana farm.
