Movie Review: Princess Kaiulani

It's been a while since I've written a movie review.  Usually when I watch a movie I never even think to review it, but when I was watching Princess Kaiulani earlier I decided I wanted to write a review.

For those of you who have never heard of her, Princess Kaiulani was the last princess of Hawaii.  This movie is about her and the annexation of Hawaii by the United States.  I don't think most people know much about the history of Hawaii.  This movie was very entertaining, and it really teaches you about a very important part of Hawaii's history.  It's also an important part of American history considering it concerns the annexation of Hawaii, but we never really learn much about Hawaii in American history at school.

There was really only one aspect of the movie that bothered me, and that was the romance.  I didn't think it was necessary to focus on it as much as they did.  I'm not sure how much of that part of the movie was true. I don't think there was anything wrong with having it in the movie, but I wish they'd made it a smaller part of the movie.  If you enjoy romance though, then you'll probably enjoy that part of the movie.  I enjoy romance, and I did like that part of the movie, but in the long run I think I would have liked the movie more if the romance had been focused on less.

I definitely recommend watching this movie if you're interested in historical movies.  It's very interesting and focuses on a part of history that you don't really get to hear about often.
