Could have been very interesting and educational
11 February 2004 | by See all my reviews

This is an HBO production of the Pilgrim's journey to the New World. 95% of the film takes place on the boat. If you are in the mood for something pretty simple to watch...There isn't much history to learn from this film and Anthony Hopkins doesn't give his best performance. I'd give it a C+.
