I'm befuddled by the rating. deaths, deaths, and more deaths. What really tipped it for me was a brief scene in which they show multiple frozen corpses lying together on the ground. Other than this, the movie is the most accurate portrayal to-date of the sufferings and faith of the Willie and Martin Handcart companies. This is a must-see for all Latter-day-saints 12 and older, and for anyone connected by ancestors to this group of spiritual giants.
