Audience Reviews for The 19th Wife

Really bad. The book was fantastic, but the movie really fell short. There was an unequal focus on the current story vs. the story set in the 1800's. Not only was the focus off, but the acting was terrible, and the whole storyline of the main character being gay is left out.

Wow. This wasn't what I was expecting. I knew this film was about polygamy but I wasn't counting on what they would show or not show. This wasn't the best film but I did enjoy the film. It was based on the book by David Ebershoff. The book might be better than the film only I haven't read the book. This film isn't a pro or con against polygamy but it does show how a polygamist Mormon sect works. This I found interesting, not saying if it's based off the truth or if it is a fictional portrayal of how the sect works. It is an intriguing film.
