Storyline

Joshua Steed returns to Missouri a wealthy man with a beautiful wife; however, the past has a way of catching up. Soon Joshua is tangled in a web of rumors, deception and betrayal that threatens to tear his family apart. Back in Kirtland, financial trouble riddles the foundations of the fledgling Church causing a division, and questioning of the Prophet Joseph Smith's divine calling. Has he lost his prophetic gift? Hundreds of Saints immigrate to Missouri, where Governor Boggs raises an army - with Joshua at its head - to address the "Mormon Problem." When the militia receives orders to attack the Mormon settlement, only Joshua can save his family from the gathering mob. Written by Excel Entertainment Group

Goofs

Non-Mormons in western Missouri are shown as wearing eastern clothing and living in frame homes. Missouri settlers in the 1830s, men and women alike, wore buckskins and lived in cabins. In fact, one of the things they disliked about Mormons was their clothing and houses, which to the "gentiles" represented an incursion of what they had gone west to get away from. See more »

Given that I have not read any of the books upon which the Work and the Glory movies are based, I do not bring a pre-conceived measuring stick to the theatre. I have,however, seen all three movies and thought this one was well-directed. The main characters were flesh and blood and not one dimensional. I enjoyed being given a window into the lives of the characters. I thought the story moved along without condescending dialog and the audience was respected enough to be allowed to put two and two together numerous times. I agree with some others that Joseph's role was too slight in this one. However, the only caricatures I saw were in some of the mobbers. Some of the resolutions were a bit swift, but were better for me than if they had been drawn out and over-dramatized. Of particular quality in acting were Sam Hennings, Eric Johnson and Meredith Salenger.
