Description

“There are two sides to every story,” or so the saying goes. For best-selling author Alex Haley, one side was Roots – the towering chronicle tracing seven generations of his mother's family. The other side comes to the screen in Alex Haley's Queen, the remarkable history of a paternal side of the author's family. David L. Wolper (Roots, The Thorn Birds) is the executive producer of this acclaimed adaption of the story Haley was working on when he died. Oscar® and Emmy® winner Halle Berry plays Queen, daughter of a slave and a plantation owner. During the turbulent decades of the antebellum South, the Civil War, Reconstruction and beyond, she searches for a home in the two cultures of her heritage – and at times is shunned by both. But rejection and hate are no match for her unconquerable will. Ann-Margret, Danny Glover, Martin Sheen and Ossie Davis also star in this poignant, uplifting final chapter of the Haley legacy.
