Visually beautiful, but not a lot happened
26 May 2020 | by bigsis_jeSee all my reviews

Visually, this is exactly the kind of movie I like to watch: American-made, historical, close-up details of the way people lived and dressed. However, story-wise, I was expecting a lot more. I didn't know this history of the LDS church before I watched it, so that might not have helped my opinion. But really nothing actually happened in this movie; no great progress was made; it was hard to tell what the main conflict/storyline was. And the ONE detail that MOST distracted me throughout the ENTIRE movie was that Emma was wearing so much makeup! At this time in history, women of good reputation did not wear makeup; so it was super distracting from the movie's attempt at historical accuracy to see a woman with really bronze blush and dark lipstick visibly caked on her face.
