Storyline

In Acadia, now part of the Canadian province of Nova Scotia, young Evangeline is betrothed to Gabriel. But before their wedding can take place, the British imprison the men and send them into exile with their lands forfeit to the Crown. Evangeline follows the exiled men in hopes of finding her beloved, but even after he and the other Acadians are released in Louisiana, she cannot find him, always arriving at some locale just after he has departed. But she dedicates her life to searching the continent for the man she loves. Written by Jim Beaver <jumblejim@prodigy.net>

The movie is the story told by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow's, poem,"Evangeline"
27 September 1998 | by (Camarillo, California) – See all my reviews

If the viewer has not yet read the poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow's, "Evangeline", it is strongly recommended they do. It is a love story told as few others have been told. The 1755 forced exile of the citizens of Arcadia in Nova Scotia by the British is imortalizes by Mr. Longfellow.
