This movie was fascinating and a bit boring at times for the male audience. I can see how a women would rave over a story of a real live princess, stripped of her powers, forced to make compromises, and manages to influence people with her charm and intellect. The evil white people aspect is glossed over about as much as one can and still be historically accurate. The movie is powerful in that you can feel the bravery, anger and heartbreak of Princess Ka'iulani. It was the descendants of the original missionaries which overthrew the government. Worse times followed as Hawaiian culture and language was essentially outlawed, primarily by the Dole family who wanted to westernize everything.
This is an excellent movie for the "young princess" out there, as it demonstrates being a princess in an exotic land really isn't as good as it pretends to be in a Disney film. The movie is historical to the point that it lacks a happy ending, unless you are an executive for Dole fruit.
No nudity, sex, or bad language. This is much information missing from this story, such as Japan's relationship with the island and the King wanting to align Hawaii (the "w" pronounced like a "V" in the movie) with Japan over the west. He attempted to arrange a marriage of the princess (at age 6) to the prince of Japan. I don't think Japan was ever mentioned in this movie. The princess really didn't die of a broken heart. She caught a fever after horseback riding.
