Joseph Smith - Plates of Gold
"Breathtakingly beautiful and historically meaningful."
"The most human and rounded screen depiction of Joseph Smith yet."
"Shows Joseph and Emma as you've never seen them before."
Step into nineteenth-century New England and experience the story of one of the most influential men in religious history. At only twenty-one years of age, Joseph Smith Jr. received a prophetic revelation that he was to translate ancient scripture into what would be published as the Book of Mormon. But his calling is not without turmoil and sacrifice for both Joseph and his young bride, Emma. The pair must endure rejection and persecution as they labor to know and do the will of the Lord.
This film is a must-see for Latter-day Saints or anyone who has heard the name of Joseph Smith. Director Christian Vuissa (The Errand of Angels, One Good Man) paints an intimate portrait of a complex man who, in spite of his human frailties, earnestly commits to serve God according to revelation he receives. You will be inspired by this touching true story of faith that chronicles the coming forth of the Book of Mormon—a story in which a rural farm boy is line upon line, precept upon precept, transformed into a prophet of God.
Special Features include Deleted Scenes, Behind-the-Scenes Featurette, and Director's Commentary. Subtitles: English, Spanish, Portuguese, French, German, Italian

Great storyline and beautifully shot as all Christian Vuissa films are. I really appreciated how Joseph Smith was portrayed as a person with temptations and weaknesses just like the rest of us. Very well done.

I love this movie I found myself laughing, crying, and laughing and crying at the same time. It was really well made and I feel it really shows that Joseph, Emma, and the rest, were real people, made mistakes, and this movie seemed to capture the raw emotions they certainly had.
I would highly recommend this movie to watch and also to give as gifts.

I wish I was on Mr. Rapiers gift giving list, as my family and I loved this movie! I am a church history buff, and there were a number of things shown in the movie that were more true to the coming forth of the Book of Mormon than we have seen before. I liked seeing a youthful Joseph and Emma- it made us appreciate how young they really were when they received this stewardship. I thought the acting was excellent and sincere, and we were touched; particularly when Emma gave birth and they lost this child. It is well worth your time and money... see for yourself!
