Product Description

Spanning five decades from the Texas Revolution through the American Civil War, True Women is a story of love, friendship, survival and triumph.

Do not be put off by the fact that this CBS miniseries was directed by a woman, based on a book by a woman and starred women in the leading roles. Women of course had a huge say in the founding of the early American west. How could they not? The book "True Women" was written by Janice Woods Windle and is based on research into Windle's own ancestors, hence the title. The film spans many decades from the Texas war of Independence from Mexico, briefly mentioning the Alamo and San Jacinto right through to the Indian uprisings, the Civil war and of course the women's suffrage movement. Quite a span of history to bridge and the sort of thing that is very reminiscent of the epic American writer James Michener's work, especially "Centennial". This is really the story of Texas the Lone Star State, and redresses the balance for women who played an equal part in its formation. Texas has a rich and proud history which is certainly worth telling!

The film is helped by the fact that it was actually filmed on location in Texas itself, which shows. The cast is pretty strong, lead by the very beautiful Angelina Jolie, and even using the very English actor Michael York as a southern gentleman. Powers Booth provides a strong brooding presence as a stalwart Texas ranger. John Schneider from "The Dukes of Hazard" interestingly appears as as Sam Huston. The story follows the fortunes of friends Euphemia and Georgia as they take different paths through Texas history. It also covers the topical subject of slavery. Made back in 1997 someone has had the good idea of putting the series onto one DVD. It is clear from watching the film that a lot has had to be cut, and that shows at times.

The film was well packaged, promptly delivered and in the promised condition. Thank you.

This is a family film, good story line, very interesting with something happening all of the time. Angeline Jolie was very convincing as always, but in my opinion her performance was surpassed by Dana Delany and Annabeth Gish.

Would love to see the unabridged edition.

Delivered on time and in very good condition but I was not very impressed with the actual film. Acting was good but the storyline left a lot to be desired in my opinion.
