Storyline

In God's Country is a modern day story of slavery. Young women ignored by the police and protected by "freedom of religion" are trapped in polygamous communities scattered throughout North America. Judith Joseph is one of them. Despite being raised under the watchful eyes of "God's Keepers" and knowing no other life, Judith realises she cannot watch her sixteen year old daughter succumb to the same fate she was born into. Desperate, with no other resources and no connections, Judith sets her house on fire and escapes with her five children. Alone, on the "outside", Judith is ill equipped to handle the challenges facing her, but she's determined to build a life. As she struggles to feed her family, Judith's daughter naively runs back to the community they've just escaped. Judith knows that if she doesn't intervene her own daughter will end up married to her former husband. Even knowing she is no match for the powerful men who call themselves prophets, Judith refuses to turn her back on... Written by Shaftesbury

Hopeful but Unrealistic
1 October 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I liked the acting. I liked the character development. And for the most part the creation of what it's like behind closed doors of Mormon life, obviously researched. The moral drive behind the wife to escape was inspiring. She knew this was wrong (God says he writes on our hearts right/wrong). Very inspiring. She clearly knew the leaders of her Mormon religion were WRONG in their beliefs. And she had the courage to face the consequences of acting on what she knew to be right. Love that.

The drastic adjustments in hair/clothing/relating to men on the outside was obviously NOT well thought out. You can see the ignorance on the writer's part as if this woman rejected these aspects of conservative life. Fashion trends are absorbed by the eyes as one sees them repeatedly. This woman would not have immediately started wearing contemporary styles of hair/clothing. Just made the movie cheesy. Relating to men would have also been more conservative to this woman. A better movie would have created more realistic transitions here.

I liked the store clerk stepping up to help this woman. The land we live in is known for such kindnesses. I'm not thrilled with the DSS stepping up like that instead of directing her to some private organizations to help her, but it was okay I guess. Unrealistic, but okay. Life outside the complex would have been extreme culture shock for this woman, especially sending the kids to school. The woman said, "Your kids must go to school." Well, there is a much less traumatizing way to transition here. She could have home educated them, or anything else than herding them into public school, often a scary place to be.

A great movie to learn the inside scoop of Mormon polygamy. A bad movie to learn how to help these people come out.
