Overview

In 1977, Alex Haley's groundbreaking mini-series Roots became one of the most watched programs in television history, telling the story of seven generations of the author's mother's family, from their capture in Africa and enslavement in the United States to their eventual emancipation more than a century later. With 1992's Queen, Haley, who passed away before completing the source material, presents the story of his father's family, focusing on his paternal grandmother, a mulato. Halle Berry stars as the title character, the daughter of a slave and a plantation owner. Amidst the Civil War and up through the turn of the century, Queen finds herself struggling to find acceptance from blacks as well as whites. With an all-star cast that also features Martin Sheen, Danny Glover, Dennis Haysbert, Ossie Davis, and Ann-Margret, Queen was directed by John Erman and originally aired in February of 1993.

This is one of my favorite movies. It is so engaging and true to form. A must see!

I used this movie to give a vivid account of life for African Americans as the Civil War was coming to an end and life afterward. It shows the rejection of the slave owners, of their own children with slaves, even when the children were mostly caucasian. Clearly Queen was the "Master's" daughter. My students were engaged and had no idea that the treatment of others was as negative as shown in the movie.

One of the best movies ever written. Jasmine Guy and Haley Berry do exceptional in this movie. I truly love it and I am so Happy now that it is on DVD!!! If you have seen ROOTS this is a must for your collection

I absolutely love this movie! Halle is great as is the entire cast, from Jasmine Guy to Dennis Haysbert. I wish they sold it on DVD!

This was an excellent movie. If you saw the Roots series, this is a must. Halle is excellent in the starring role.
