At first, I thought that "The Mists of Avalon" would be just like every other tale told of Camalot, but I was blown away by the originality of this story. It is told by the woman who has always been viewed as the villan, Morgaine. It is mainly about the struggle that the followers of the mother goddess go through as Christianity spreads through Britain. It focuses more on the mystical ways of Avalon and less on Camalot, making it different from most stories. The performance of Anjelica Huston will blow you away. It is one of her best films yet. Contains a great cast and beautiful scenery. It's a must see, and would best be viewed without commercials to interrupt.
