This is about a religious community who practise polygamy.The males in the community can have many wives.The main character is a young girl who is to be forced into marriage against her will to an older man and her conflict of loving her family but wanting a life free of the restrictions and rules within the community.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great film,poor quality dvd..., 9 May 2013
This review is from: Child Bride Of Short Creek (DVD) (DVD)
1981 tv movie & a dramatization of actual events,we used to have this on video so i was thrilled when i found it had been released on dvd as its a film i have watched over & over!
It follows the story of 15 yr old Jessica(Diane lane),growing up as part of a polygamist community in the 1950's.Jessica finds it hard to except her fate in life & longs to lead a normal life so she finds herself torn between her family & following her heart.
Featuring an excellent cast -esp Diane lane in one of her earliest roles,this is a great coming of age drama.The only downside is that the dvd is such poor quality,its obviously a straight from VHS transfer which is a shame as this film deserves a much better release then this!

This is about a religious community who practise polygamy.The males in the community can have many wives.The main character is a young girl who is to be forced into marriage against her will to an older man and her conflict of loving her family but wanting a life free of the restrictions and rules within the community. It is a good story and keeps the interest going throughout. Will she get out ? This is an early film of Helen Hunt and she has one or two good scenes but i would have liked to see more of her. She is a plus in any film !

This review is from: Child Bride Of Short Creek (DVD) (DVD)
watching this looked a bit tired and very much dated- but the plot is reasonable- chris atkins still at his best -so early in his career- 5.5/10
