I saw this movie at an advance screening and I think it was amazing! Jon Voit will probably get another oscar for his performance...

As a family member of two of the murder victims, I have to tell you all to watch the movie, as it is based on factual evidence, including testimony by Brigham Young and others who were complicant in the massacre.

The movie is excellent! All the acting was superb! Michael Cain's story was our family's story - that innocent people were killed by order of religious fanatics. The love story part was fiction, of course, but it helped get the message out to the populace who otherwise would not find the story interesting - and it was a wonderful story.

This September 11th is the 150th anniversary of the killing of 120 innocent men, women and children, whose only desire was to finish their long trek from their home in Arkansas to their new home and life in California.

I hope you all will honor the souls of the innocent dead whose bodies were stripped naked and left to rot in an open field for almost two years, until the US Army came by and did their best to bury the bones in open graves.

We hope that Mormons everywhere will send the message to their President Gordon Hinckley to lift the order of secrecy in the LDS complicancy and turn the killing site at Mountain Meadows (north of St George, Utah) over to appropriate, federal, stewardship - in the name of God.

You realize that despite Jon Voit's performance as usual is "impeccable"
Don't you realize as american citizens that should know their own history, that the movie is highly inaccurate historically?
The acting besides Mr Voit, seemed something that should of been on a T.V independent movie, and the costumes seemed as if they where freshly pressed at a dry cleaner's even thoe they where supposedly traveling cross country....sorry but the film has given you education system a laugh for its own money!
