Saints & Strangers

120 minutes

Saints & Strangers is a story that goes beyond the familiar historical account of Thanksgiving and the founding of Plymouth Plantation, revealing the trials and tribulations of the settlers at Plymouth: 102 men, women and children who sailed on a chartered ship for a place they had never seen. Of this group, half are those we think of as “pilgrims,” religious separatists who abandoned their prior lives for a single cause: religious freedom. The other half, the "merchant adventurers," had less spiritual and more material, real-world objectives. This clash of values created complex inner struggles for the group as they sought to establish a new colony, compounded by a complicated relationship with the local Native American tribes. The conflicting allegiances among these groups culminated in trials of assimilation, faith, and compromise, that continued to define our nation to this day.

Saints and Strangers is a nicely set period drama about the Pilgrims settling in North America. The cast is very diverse and the actors play their parts well. The show illustrates the brutal conditions the Pilgrims and Natives had to endure. It also displays the blind faith in the Catholic religion by the Pilgrims. This mini-series was a nice piece of American history and also a decent watch.
