I was excited to see this movie since it has received so many great reviews. Jane and Emma is based on the relationship between Sister Jane Manning, one of the first black Mormons, and Emma Smith, wife to the prophet Joseph. It's a fictionalized depiction of the night after Joseph Smith is murdered and Jane and Emma are watching over the body, sharing their grief. The actress who plays Jane, Danielle Deadwyler, gives a powerful and believable performance as Jane. I could feel her emotions as she faced so much trial and hardship in her search for truth and peace. I wanted to know more about her life and wished the film had delved deeper into the events that shaped her incredible faith. The music of the film was also extremely well-done. I thought the film provided a lot of opportunity for discussions on social issues that we still face today and has an inspiring message. Definitely a film for every library.
