Divided by Hate ★★ 1996 (PG-13)

In 1984, struggling farmer Louis Gibbs (Walsh), wife Carol (Roth), and their children fall under the spell of charismatic preacher Steve Riordan (Skerritt) whose anti-government sentiments lead to the forming of a local militia. Naturally, the FBI gets involved and there's a struggle between the feds and the militia, with the family caught in the middle. If it sounds familiar that's because it's based on the 1995 Branch Davidian incident. 92m/C VHS . Dylan Walsh, Andrea Roth, Tom Skerritt; D: Tom Skerritt; W: Leonard Gross.
