Enslavement: The True Story of Fanny Kemble Photos

Movie Info

Jane Seymour stars in this made-for-cable biographical drama as Fanny Kemble, a popular British stage actress of the 19th Century who, at the height of her career, quit acting to marry Pierce Butler, a successful planter in the American South. Kemble was deeply disturbed by the treatment of slaves on her husband's plantation, which she soon discovered was par for the course in the South at that time. Eventually, her disgust led her to leave her husband, become an outspoken activist for abolition, and write a book about slavery in America -- Journal of a Residence on a Georgian Plantation, which caused a scandal in her native England and led to British support of the Union during the Civil War. Enslavement: The True Story of Fanny Kemble also stars Keith Carradine and James Keach.
