The Donner Party | 2009



Based on the harrowing true story, “The Donner Party” picks up after William Hastings steers a group, nicknamed 'Forlorn Hope,' off course by promising a shorter route to California through the Sierra Nevada mountains. After several early snowstorms, the group and its leaders (Crispin Glover and Clayne Crawford) find themselves lost, freezing and without any source of food.
