All her life, Henriette deLille devoted her life to helping the poor and enslaved of Louisiana, even going against the authorities to do so. It's not an easy life to live but it's a purposeful one. One that emphasize a life of service and devotion to spiritual matters.
Vanessa L. Williams has done a great job in portraying Henriette Delille.
As this 90-minute production depicts very well, Henriette's ultimate decision is influenced by the pressures of existing social realities, but it's also motivated by her great compassion for the suffering of fellow Creoles in New Orleans. Her spiritual growth in the latter parts of the film is depicted as a gradual and sensitive acceptance of God's will for her life.Read more ›
I soldiered on and watched the movie in its entirety because I'm stubborn. I wanted to movie to redeem itself in the end. *sigh* I should have let go of the dream. The movie petered out to a slow ending that gave me no satisfaction. I won't go into details for those who, like me, are stubborn enough to insist on watching it and prefer not to know how the movie ends.
to choose the highest good for oneself and
others, putting values in right priority.

The story was weak and the ending disappointing. The acting was not believable and Vanessa Williams was way too old to play the role of this young woman. Read morePublished 4 days ago by love2buy
