The Roots Saga Continues
There are two sides to every story, the saying goes. For 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 the paternal side of the author's family.
Oscar and Emmy winner Halle Berry plays Queen, daughter of a slave (Jasmine Guy) and a plantation owner (Tim Daly). During the years 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 and Ossie Davis also star in this poignant, uplifting final chapter of the Haley legacy.
