Good argument for polygamous marriage????
3 April 2006 | by pennibelleSee all my reviews

Incredible how such a thing could happen involving a man of such prominence! I'm sure this was almost incomprehensible back in the '70's and '80's, though not as unthinkable during our times today. The acting is stellar and very believable.

I would highly recommend this movie for viewing as would like to submit that maybe this movie could also be used in an academic discussion or debate regarding the issue of polygamous marriage since this is definitely a hotbed issue during out times.

Of course both wives would need to 'be on-board', but I still feel that this particular story would definitely bring up different thoughts and feelings.

I would say that is is a MUST WATCH movie.
