I have said it many times and still believe that if I lived back in theses days of slavery, I would have been dead.
This woman endured too much for the sake of this fool that seemed obsessed by a man who couldn't stand up for her when it was needed. A mother and children lost her due to ignorance and silly laws because of the color of skin.
A precious life lost,and to see and say but it still goes on today .
This movie get a 10.

I watched this movie on the edge of my seat. It's a shame how race was the key reason for this woman's demise. She stood for what she believed in and remained humble throughout the whole ordeal. She stood firm in her faith and made it clear it wasnt how man felt but that God had forgiven her.

I had been researching Lena Baker for months and was happy to see that there was a movie about her. Overall, it was a pretty good movie, very straight to the point. I wish the acting was a little stronger from all the characters and I wish that they would have dug into her history more. They kind of brushed over her out of wedlock children, absentee father, etc. Overall not great but good.

I love true stories but, this has got to be one of the saddess movies I've ever watched. How could people be so cold-hearted and cruel. This was more of a documentary, it seemed unreal because she had no other life than being abused by a man, yet she had three children (none of which were his). The movie never showed her having a relationship with anyone except her mom, children and the abuser who stole her away in the night.

Great movie. I enjoyed the way the actors portrayed the characters also. Tichina Arcold starred in "Martin" didn't she? Well she was no buffoon in this movie. She is better in serious movies. I thoroughly enjoyed this movie. It will never be for sale from me @ any yard sale. Thanks.Lena Baker Story

Movie caused me to do research on Lena Baker to find out more about her story. On the other hand, the quality of the movie was poor. The actors actually did a very good job but the videography was poor. Having more money in the producers budget would have helped out alot.

This movie is based on the true story of Lena Baker. It is very heartbreaking. But for anyone who is interested in historical pieces, this is a good movie to get.
