Storyline

Aged Rulon Jeffs is the leader - the prophet - of the Fundamentalist Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints (FLDS) centered in Colorado City, Arizona. His followers believe the prophet is the voice of God. The church espouses polygamy - most specifically men married to several women - as a means of eternal salvation of the highest order. The prophet places the females into marriages, often as soon as they are of child bearing age, which in the eyes of the law is considered child abuse if the female is a minor. Following Rulon's death, his son Warren Jeffs assumes the FLDS leadership as prophet, somewhat against the wants of FLDS council who believed they should vote on who should become leader. Regardless, many of the congregation do follow his word as gospel as their new prophet. But Warren is more reckless in his decisions than his father, with some, including some of the young minor women, questioning his unbending decisions, excommunication often the price for crossing those ...

Timeline and facts are wrong (Possible Spoilers)
13 July 2014 | by See all my reviews

I've always been interested in the lifestyle of the FLDS sect. I've read many first hand stories of lives escaped from the sect as well as Elissa Wall's story. First of all, Uncle Rulon was alive before when she was married to her cousin Alan Steed. Next, most children feared and disliked "Uncle Warren." Additionally, it was not Warren who advised that Elissa would be married to Alan but it was her new father, Elissa fought the union to the end. Thus far this time line is all wrong as are the facts. One thing that was right was the fact that Warren was not supposed to be leader of the church. The creepy and disgusting vibe is shown well. I realize that movie producers take certain liberties with stories but one such as monumental and compelling as this could have been more factually relevant.
