Queen (1993, TV Movie)


There are two sides to every story, the saying goes. For Alex Haley, one side was Roots, the towing chronicle tracing seven generations of his mother's family. The other side comes to the scene in Alex Haley's Queen, the remarkable history of the author's family's paternal side.

Queen (Halle Berry), 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.
