So incredibly cheesy
25 July 2017 | by See all my reviews

One More Mountain is a biopic about the Donner party. Yes, you read that correctly. Why anyone would choose to make a movie about them, I'll never know. In any case, the film focuses on the Reed family, rather than the Donners, who were involved in the famous trek to California. Meredith Baxter and Chris Cooper play Margaret and James Reed, who travel from Chicago to California in a covered wagon. They were wealthy and prosperous in Chicago, so there was no reason for the journey in the first place, but off they went, with four children and a sick grandmother in tow. Believe it or not, the movie is far from graphic. Children could see it, although I have no idea why they'd want to. The most upsetting and dramatic scene is when they're forced to lighten their load because the horses are getting tired. Chris Cooper takes his wife's precious China and throws it out of the wagon. Oh no!

Anyway, this is a very cheesy TV movie about a very unpopular family. I can't really think of any reason why anyone would watch it, unless they're related to a cast member and need to be supportive.
