A wonderful, inspiring and romantic film
27 May 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I found the film to be truly uplifting. It's amazing to see the challenges that Emma and Joseph went through and found the faith and strength to endure. This film elevated my opinion of Emma Smith and confirmed the love that she and her husband shared. It's hard to fit a life into two hours, but so many key points were touched on, handled well and the time goes by fast. Emma Smith's strength was truly shown here, or more accurately, how she found it. The film also portrays well the tenderness and sweetness of the family's relationships. Photography and acting were excellent and the film left me wanting to know more about their lives. Using the format of an interview between Emma and her adopted daughter brought in an excellent connection for those with a naturally skeptical or challenging views which were answered well by Emma herself. A very tastefully done movie. Thank you to those who made it happen.
