Storyline: Margaret Reed, a wealthy and proud woman of Chicago unwillingly finds herself a member of the Donner party - a group of pioneers making their way to California by covered wagon in the summer of 1846. One by one the odds begin to stack against Margaret and her family as precious days slip away and an early winter storm closes the passes through the Sierra Nevada mountain range. Trapped without adequate food and supplies, Margaret struggles to keep her family alive.--IMDb (Anonymous)
IMDb User Review:
A good replay of the old story (July 21, 2003 by Lady_Arwyn): While this story has been repeated many times already, this one does offer something new. Meridith Baxter plays Margaret Reed, wife of James Reed, a primary financier of the Donner Expedition.
A wealthy family, the Reeds set out with a huge number of wagons, most carrying their worldly goods, driven by hired help, while the extended family rides in relative comfort in a huge, oversized custom built Connestoga passenger wagon.
Soon their stuck-up, overbearing ways get them in trouble with their fellow passengers and gradually they find themselves in the same "shoes" as their fellow travellers. When James kills another member of the party (self defense?) he is banished from the party, and goes ahead to California, able to travel much faster than the wagons.
And of course, they are trapped on Donner Summit.
One More Mountain is probably more historically accurate than many other variations on the story of the "Donner Party" that have been made in past years. It was a made for TV movie, and suffers the usual TV pacing and production qualities.
