Movie Review by Joy
August 28th, 2007

September Dawn

September Dawn tells the story of the historic events that led to the massacre of the Fancher-Baker wagon train at Mountain Meadows in Utah on September 11, 1857. Although the film dramatizes certain events, such as the romance between Jonathan Samuelson and Emily Hudson, it brings to life the trauma and betrayal the immigrants must have experienced during this massacre. Without realizing their doom, they were led like lambs to a slaughter by the Mormon militia.

The facts of these events have been buried far too long and I appreciate director Christopher Cain for giving voice to those victims who were so brutally murdered that September day. He and writer Carole Whang Schutter have beautifully portrayed the immigrants' heartwrenching story. I found the movie very enlightening and would encourage anyone interested in history to go see September Dawn. I will certainly buy the DVD when it becomes available.
