My wife and I both enjoyed this film and have added this to our collection for our family. The story was well done and places everything into perspective and adds another angle to the history of The LDS Church. The title can lead you to believe that the entire film is about Emma Smiths life, but in reality it shows the trials of Joseph Smith and the early years of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints and the effect these events had on Emma.

I purchased this on Blu-ray and was expecting a bit more out of the picture quality for a high def title. The picture is soft but contains wonderful colors with the occasional blemish on the film throughout. I agree with the other review that the audio levels were pretty low which shows a lack of experience from the production company. That being said, all of this can be forgiven by people looking for wholesome and uplifting entertainment. In "Mormon Cinema" this is a realistic and rewarding story that you'll enjoy.

I usually end up being disappointed with movies like these, but this one was good. I recommend it to anyone who is interested in learning more about this amazing woman, Emma Smith, and her sacrifices for what she believed in. LDS or not, it is an interesting and informative film.

I have a much greater appreciation for what Emma Smith went through in her years as the wife of Joseph Smith. She was a very devoted wife and mother who leaves us a fine example to follow. Movie is very well done and the sets are great. 5 stars

The volume was recorded too low. I had to turn the volume up all the way just to barely hear it. It took away from the movie because of this.
The story is very interesting but hard to hear.

The story is well written and this is one of the best-produced L.D.S. history-based movies in every aspect that has been produced by anyone! The blu-ray is the best photography I've seen on any movie yet and I'm an aspiring photographer! Over and over throughout the movie I just kept saying "this is the kind of quality I've been hoping someone would produce and finally has; superb cinematography, color, sharpness, screenplay, storyline, and the acting is pretty darn good too." Few movies produced today (including l.d.s. movies) have a truly positive, life-changing affect on their viewers--but this one brought me closer to Joseph and Emma, and helped me understand and appreciate them in very motivating ways; I want to be worthy to associate with good people like them in the eternities so I had better take more care and work harder to stay on track in this life--if you know what I mean! My faith and hope were strengthened through this movie! Emma was a spiritual giant just like Joseph and this movie helps you to understand that. I would like to show this to every young woman in the church because I think Emma, in this movie, is such a positive role model for women and young women. So glad I bought the blu-ray version because on my blu-ray player and HD TV this film is what I would call "full of eye candy" it is so gorgeous and well-produced and filmed. After just the first viewing, it's one of my favorite movies! This kind of uplifting and inspiring entertainment is what people need to be watching and being inspired by today! I went out and bought "Praise To the Man" also, and I now want to get the other movies produced by T.C. Christensen as well! Treat yourself and your family to some faith-promoting, quality entertainment! I'm so glad that I did!

This is a wonderful film for the whole family. It gives the viewers a greater undertanding of a truly great woman.

This was pretty good. I would like to see a little more about her life after Joseph's death. It is unfathomable what that woman had to bear for love of her husband and her God. She never had a life of her own. Her home and her husband were always being invaded because of Joseph and her belief in him. I ache for what she had to bear even 150 years later. I wonder would I have her courage and fortitude. Thank God I have not had to find out in the way that she did.

Emma Smith is portraid well as a generouse, loyal wife and mother and friend. She was obedient to the Lord even when she did not understand the command. I found her story not only believable but to be inspirational. Very well done film.I would give as a gift to loved ones.

I converted to the LDS church recently & I absolutely love it. This film is awesome & so realistic. It brought Emma Hale Smith to life for me. People love to bring up negative things about Mormons but all I can say is I have never been closer to the Lord. God called me to the church. * AND, NO - they do not practice polygamy!!! Geez. It was outlawed by the church itself 120 years ago at the same time other folks had to stop practicing plural marriage. It was not just a mormon lifestyle. Anyway, if people will ever stop talking about that boring old subject, quit exaggerating the truth, & end their pleasure of making up negative lies about the church - others would have the opportunity to see the real truth of the LDS church. It is indeed beautiful!

A piece of history nicely filmed, yet exempt of all controversy: don't expect to see Emma discuss polygamy, nor her feuds with Brigham Young, nor the fact that Emma and her son Joseph joined the Reorganized Movement.
