Summary: I, as a professional writer, was recently contacted by a cousin of Janice Woods Windle to edit a writing that she had done about the true characters in the True Women saga. In addition to her narrative, she sent me numerous photos that she had collected over her lifetime of the actual persons...
A very good combination of history, adventure, drama, and feminist movie
23 October 2006
Summary: "True women" was a wonderful surprise. When I read the summary, it sounded very similar to many women drama wannabes that are built behind the belief that anything with the excuse of a different point of view of an otherwise often told story will sell, but they often lack strong characters and,...
This movie deserves a place amongst the finest Westerns.

Summary: Some could say this is a feel good film for women. And I guess it is indeed a movie that women's rights types could focus upon to reinforce their views. However, the movie went beyond that narrow thought line. I'm an old geezer with no fear of strong women, and this film was full of them.
A Beautiful Melodramatic Glance in the American History

Summary: Yesterday I bought the VHS of "True Women" just because of the very low price and today I have decided to watch it. What a awesome surprise I have had! This movie is a beautiful melodramatic glance in the American history and a great homage to the pioneer women.
Summary: True Women is a genuinely great movie. i happened to be flipping through the channels and luckily landed at the beginning. i started watching it and couldnt get up until it was over which was 4 hours later, and i am not one for long movies but i was absorbed.
Summary: A magnificent look at American history. Angelina Jolie and Dana Delaney were standouts (as usual). There was laughter, tears, joy, and excitement - and that was just me!!! I thoroughly recommend this movie as a well acted, and quite accurate from what I've read, drama about the early west.
Summary: True Women is essentially a Western Drama that revolves around the lives and times of 3 women,different in their ideals and personalities but similar in their inner strength and courage.It is a poignant story told vividly and effectively on the plains of Texas.It successfully avoids stereotypes and...
I wish I could give TRUE WOMEN a perfect review...
10 November 2001
Summary: . . . but its one flaw is too glaring to permit that. The problem: The plot is *insane*. Within the first twenty minutes of the movie, the main character, somewhere-around-ten-year-old Euphemia, has been orphaned and uprooted from her home, The Alamo has fallen to Mexican soldiers, and the wives and...
Summary: I saw this movie when it first appeared on television, and when renting videos recently, I saw this title, and remember being impressed. I rented it, and was delighted all over again! What a wonderful movie!
Summary: True Women is a very well done film. It is about my own ancestors. Sarah and Euphemia were my ggg grand aunts, being sisters to my ggg grandmother [who was not in the fim]...but she was on the runaway scrape. I was thrilled to view this film, among the tears.
