Amazon.com The second in a series of epic films about the beginnings of the Mormon church (preceded by The Work and the Glory and followed by The Work and the Glory: A House Divided), The Work and the Glory: American Zion chronicles the struggles of church founder Joseph Smith (Jonathan Scarfe, Into the West) to found the promised land--Zion--that God has promised him and his followers. The movie blends historical events (such as the destruction of the printing press used to publish Joseph Smith's visions) with the fictional story of the Steed family: The father, Benjamin (Sam Hennings, Seasons of the Heart), doesn't believe in Smith but labors to support his family, even as his two sons are sent in different directions: Nathan (Alexander Carroll) and his wife follow Smith devoutly, while Joshua (Eric Johnson, Smallville) joins a Missouri militia that drives the Mormons from the state. Members of the Church of Latter Day Saints will undoubtedly find this dramatization of their history compelling; for others, it may feel like a religious soap opera trying to encompass so much history that the characters never develop beyond types. Based on the nine-volume series by Gerald N. Lund; also featuring Brenda Strong (Desperate Housewives). --Bret Fetzer Product Description In November of 1833, the state of Missouri turned a blind eye as hundreds of its peaceful inhabitants were hunted down and driven from their homes in the dead of night. Against this impending strife, a young man with a divine vision leads a people against the aggression of an anti-hero with a vulnerable past. With more than two million copies sold, the second volume of Gerald N. Lund's epic series The Work and the Glory now brings a pivotal moment in American history to the big screen. "The Work and The Glory: American Zion" sets the story of the fictional Steed family against the historically factual backdrop of the Mormon people's move into the West. Divided by their diverse reactions to a nascent ideology, the Steeds struggle to hold together as the strength of their convictions and their filial bonds are tested. The stirring narrative of the faith that led a persecuted people to Missouri and beyond is one of the most poignant untold tales of American history. It is the account of a valiant struggle to exercise the rights promised by a fledgling nation. "The Work and the Glory: American Zion" unearths the story of the passion behind the movement which eventually launched the largest American migration and the colonization of the West: the vision of a promised land in America.
