The film "Saints & Strangers," which airs on National Geographic in two parts beginning Sunday, Nov. 22 9/8c, tells the true story behind Thanksgiving. It chronicles the quest of two groups -- the pilgrims and the opportunists on board the Mayflower -- who came to the New World under very different pretenses. The film is a thrilling period piece adventure/drama that places a surprising emphasis on the faith of the pilgrims and shows how their reliance on God got them through the hardest of times.
I attended the film's premiere in Beverly Hills and had the privilege of interviewing the cast and filmmakers -- including actors like Ron Livingston ("Office Space"), Anna Camp ("The Help"), and Raoul Truillo ("Apocalypto").
