Opening credits prologue: Of the 103 men, women and children who sailed for 66 days aboard the Mayflower, 51 died during the first winter in the New World. John Alden and Priscilla Mullins married, and had eleven children. Captain Myles Standish was instrumental in establishing friendly relations with the native Indians. Rose Standish died shortly after arrival. William Brewster continued to provide inspired spiritual leadership to the people of Plymouth Colony.

This is an HBO production of the Pilgrim's journey to the New World. 95% of the film takes place on the boat. If you are in the mood for something pretty simple to watch...There isn't much history to learn from this film and Anthony Hopkins doesn't give his best performance. I'd give it a C+.
