A wonderful movie; historically accurate; wonderful acting; beautifully done; everyone should see it!
31 December 2005 | by See all my reviews

Enslavement: The True Story of Fanny Kemble is a beautiful movie. The scripting is true to life and very accurate of that comprised in Fanny Kemble's Journals. The costuming by Cheri Ingle was excellent. The directing by James Keach is just superb. Jane Seymour looks very much like the real Fanny Kemble. With her English past she made Fanny Kemble come alive for me. The other cast was excellent as well. It was shot in only 22 days but you could never tell. This remains my favorite movie to date. It is dramatic, romantic, true to life, and can get right to your heart. Everyone should see this truly touching and wonderful movie!
