Jane and Emma

By Camlyn Giddins

Jane and Emma movie still
“As a woman, as a person of color, and as a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, I am relieved that I can genuinely recommendΒ Jane and EmmaΒ as a quality filmβ€”unique, significant, and relevant to the needs of our day. The strength of the film can be found in its story and content, casting and production team, soundtrack, cinematography, and driving purpose.”
