Feast of All Saints

The Feast of All Saints is an adaptation Ann Rice's novel of the same name. The movie was broadcast as a mini-series via ShowTime back in 2001 and covers an intriguing subject:
Set in nineteenth-century New Orleans, the story depicts the gens de couleur libre, or the Free People of Colour, a dazzling yet damned class caught between the world of white privilege and black oppression.
The film stars James Earl Jones, Jennifer Beals, Gloria Reuben, Victoria Rowell, Jasmine Guy, Ruby Dee, Robert Richard, Nicole Lyn and Bianca Lawson. What's nice about this story is we get a rare look at biracial/mixed people in that period. The accents sound cheesy at times, but overall the movie is worth a watch. Beals, Lyn and Lawson have quality scenes together, perhaps some of the most poignant. I especially enjoyed the ballroom dance scenes and classical music soundtrack which aren't often accompanied in most black films.

Did you watch the movie during its initial run? Catch it on DVD? Share your thoughts.
