This review includes no spoilers but rather actual, significant incidents that are essential to the story but were omitted from the movie to its detriment; e.g., Indians attacked twice for sport and killed many oxen; Indians mocked the settlers as they starved; at one point the settlers decided they would have to sacrifice one life to eat and save the others, they drew lots but then couldn't follow through with it and so abandoned that idea. Many key persons were not included in the movie, such as the Pike's, and Captain John Sutter; the Donner's are barely included. Early in the movie, Mrs. Reed responds to a stranger that they are with the Donner Party, which at that time they were not. The movie did not accurately depict the mutually agreed upon splitting of the two parties--one which took the old route and the other which took the Hastings route--and completely omitted the subsequent vote in which the Donner Party voted in George Donner to be their leader and not Reed. Dates/seasons are not clear throughout the movie and the weather shown is inaccurate. This movie compensates with filler scenes that depict incidents which did not occur. I recommend you watch the PBS documentary and skip this movie. There is also a good book on the Donner party. In true life, who resorted to cannibalism and who didn't is interesting. The movie also doesn't touch on the last man rescued, who embraced cannibalism, killed the remaining survivors, ate them, hid Tamsen Donner's body, and ultimately opened a restaurant in Sacramento. I could go on, but I'll leave it at that.
