Hollywood has never taken to Mormons the way it has with members of many other faiths.

Sure, there was "Brigham Young," the epic 1940 Western starring Tyrone Power and Linda Darnell as Mormon pioneers and Dean Jagger as the title character. But depictions like that were few and far between.

It took LDS filmmakers to get the ball rolling around the turn of the 21st century, with a wave of independently produced movies made by and for Mormons.

These filmmakers usually had miniscule budgets, and it showed in far too many cheap-looking and horribly acted movies. But some titles showed talent at work.
