Enjoyable and inspiring
25 October 2009 | by (Denmark) – See all my reviews

I did not know who Kemble was before watching this, though I am now very impressed with her. This is the true story of the British woman who came to the US, and started the process of forced labor being abolished. The plot is interesting and well-told throughout. Acting is great, and Jane Seymour is completely beyond reproach as the courageous Fanny, who would fight for her convictions. Keith, one of the sons of the masterful John Carradine, is the male lead, and also does marvelously. The dialog is good, with numerous utterly golden lines. This is well-paced, and never loses your attention. The historical accuracy goes far, but there are a couple of places where they seem to have forgotten what time period it was, for a brief time. Costumes and sets are spot-on, and the production values leave nothing to be desired. All of the humor is fitting and doesn't at any point try too hard. The likening of a marriage during the time period this takes place to a lesser form of slavery is clever and holds up. There is disturbing content in this. I recommend this to any fan of authentic films. 7/10
