Or both? The SL Trib carried a recent story announcing the production of a new film, "Emma Smith: My Story," scheduled for release in spring of 2008. The article notes that it will be filmed at the LDS Motion Picture Studio in Provo, so I doubt that Emma's full enigmatic story will get told. And it is described as a "feature film" rather than a documentary, suggesting that the script will, uh, massage the facts a bit in order to
correlate enhance the storyline and rewrite sharpen the characters. But who knows? I actually like the new Joseph Smith movie. Maybe this one will be a pleasant surprise as well.
Here is a paragraph from the SL Trib piece quoting the Encyclopedia of Mormonism article on Emma Smith:
She struggled between her faith in her husband's prophetic role and her aversion to a principle that he, as prophet, had been instructed to institute. Unable to condone continuation of the practice of plural marriage or the leadership of Brigham Young, who supported it, and ambivalent about the proper line of succession to her husband, Emma made her first priority after her husband's death the preservation of an inheritance for her five living children.
