One of my favorite movies of all time.
22 May 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This movie is really good. It is about 45 minutes, and follows Eliza, an early convert to Mormonism, as she experiences many of the early events of that movement's history. Her personal story is interwoven with those pivotal events.

The movie is very moving and you'd have to be a crusty cynic to not be touched by it. It is also an inspiring story of romance.

The girl who plays Eliza is an incredible actress. Her husband is good, but not spectacular. There are some scenes where there is some pretty bad acting, but the movie remains a very good work. The scenery is spectacular, the music is top-notch, and except for some of the bad acting, the directing is great.
