] Just looked at my USA Today paper, and one of the headlines is "The Odyssey is great, despite Assante." I trolled the Internet to find a review of The Odyssey. The link is below. Enjoy. (I think I may watch it Sunday night, maybe, probably.)
Dana Delany star of the CBS Mini-Series TRUE WOMEN discusses
her character and the role women played in shaping the west. "I read the script on an airplane, and by the end of the flight, I knew I had to play this part," says Dana Delany, discussing her role as Sarah McClure in the mini-series TRUE WOMEN, to be broadcast Sunday,May 18 and Tuesday, May 20 (9:00-11:00 PM, ET/PT, each night) on the CBS Television Network. "There was something about it that was so epic and emotional and yet also just deeply beautiful."
TRUE WOMEN, starring Delany, Annabeth Gish, Angelina Jolie,Tina Majorino and Powers Boothe, is an epic saga about three generations of women who change the face of the America West. Michael Greyeyes and Jeff Nordling also star; Charles Dutton and Michael York make special appearances.
This sweeping tale of love, war and the American spirit, based on Janice Woods Windle's best-selling historical novel about the lives of the women in her own family, spans five decades in the 1880s -- from the Texas Revolution, through Indian uprisings and the Civil War to the early stages of the women's suffrage movement. The settling of the American frontier is seen through the eyes of three brave women (Sarah Ashby McClure, played by Delany; Euphemia Ashby King, played as a youth by Majorino and as an adult by Gish; and Georgia Lawshe Woods, played as a youth by Rachael Leigh Cook and as an adult by Jolie)."
I am going to watch this one. I have just seen a reveiw for this on a cable Channel it seems that the reviewer (who was a man) liked it better. ;-)
