Overview

The incredible true story of Hawaiian princess Ka'iulani Q'orianka Kilcher comes to the screen in this historical drama from first time writer/director Marc Forby. The year is 1888; a rebel alliance with connections to the American government has succeeded in destabilizing Hawaii. When the fight comes to the royal palace, 13-year-old heir to the throne Princess Ka'iulani is spirited away to Victorian England -- where her royalty holds no bearing on her social standing. As Princess Ka'iulani struggles to adapt to her new surroundings, she finds herself falling in love with handsome, rebellious young Englishman Clive Davies Shaun Evans. Four years later, the princess receives word that the queen has been incarcerated, and the monarch has fallen. In time Princess Ka'iulani realizes that in order to save her people she must give up her romance with Clive, and travel to America in order to speak with President Grover Cleveland. Convinced that she can restore her kingdom by proving to the Americans that her people are not the savage barbarians that the press portrays them to be, the princess makes her way to the United States and wages a valiant fight against the grave injustices being inflicted upon native Hawaiians.

    Excellent by any measure!

    Ua mau ke ea o ka 'aina i ka pono, o Hawai'i. I first heard those words sung at ceremonies and pageants during my high school years in Honolulu. I saw them on the seal at Iolani Palace and Hulihe'e Palace. When Israel Kamakawiwo'ole included them as lyrics on "Hawai'i '78" I finally researched their meaning and history. I now have a dedicated Hawaiiana shelf in my personal library, where this gem of a film now finds a home. Excellently cast, performed, scored and set, with period costumes properly buttoned up or flowing in the Kona winds as required, "Princess Kai'ulani" unfurls the story of the young royal as well as the years leading up to the U.S. flag over the territory. I may be a haole, but "Princess Kai'ulani" gave me chicken skin. Perhaps this movie, an appealing entertainment in its own right, will serve as an instrument for the Hawaiian's concerns. At the very least, perhaps the black cloud of revisionist history that has stood incorrectly as fact for too long can ride the wave of whirring DVD players and dissipate at sea! Ua mau ke ea o ka 'aina I ka pono, o Hawai'i. From the lips of the Hawaiians to God's ears.
