  • Kilcher is lovely. But sadly, Ka'iulani is a perfunctory biopic of the sort one might encounter on television during Women's History Month. show more

  • A stirring romantic drama centering on the last royal heir to the native line of traditional monarchs. show more

  • Designed to be both essential history lesson and costume weeper, Princess Kaiulani comes up short on both fronts: Deadly earnest intentions and lack of dramatic gumption ensure that the story of Hawaii’s favored daughter remains under-told. show more

    For a much stronger understanding of the Princess and her times read \"Unlucky Star\" by Pamela Jameson. The movie takes a mostly hackneyed and facile perception of her life.

    @TheVisitor967 - You have the actress wrong. Keisha Castle Hughes was on Whale Rider. This actress is Q'orianka Kilcher who was in the New World. This movie does a good depiction of the forced annexation of Hawaii at gunpoint and their last heir's attempt to assist her people. For a smaller budget film, the filmmakers did an excellent job maximizing what they could to depict the era.
