September Dawn

Have you heard about the movie "September Dawn"?  I've seen the teasers on TV, but haven't paid much attention to it, until this morning when I read its description.  It's a Hollywood account of the September 11, 1857 Mormon massacre in which a group of settlers were murdered by the native Mormons.  I've heard a couple accounts of this story before, but I wonder if the Mormons will get a fair treatment in this movie.  I can only imagine that it will be a little sensationalized.  I have to say I'm a little intrigued by it, but I can't help but wonder what the Mormon community thinks. 
 
If you're Mormon, or if you've heard anything about the Mormon reaction to this movie, sound off.

  1. so it was featured on the homepage of the LDS official website:http://www.lds.org/portal/site/LDSOrg/menuitem.b12f9d18fae655bb69095bd3e44916a0/?vgnextoid=2354fccf2b7db010VgnVCM1000004d82620aRCRD&locale=0&sourceId=1c234dc029133110VgnVCM100000176f620a____&locale=0it's unfortunate that it, like most things that are “about Mormons” (aka Big Love on HBO) is presented negatively. (do people honestly think that Mormons practice polygamy? Could you handle more than one wife? 🙂 BUT, what are you going to do? People are very interested in the religion (not necessarily wanting to convert, just learn), and with Romney running for President, it just brings more attention to anything and everything controversial.
