Orphans in the Storm (1921)

Dir. D.W. Griffth
150 minutes

Again not a bad movie, but something I wasn’t really interested in (hence, the 4). Again, I wouldn’t recommend this film: I don’t think many would really like it, nor do I think it’s critical for film appreciation.

Griffith tells the story of the French Revolution through a soap-opera story involving two sisters, one of which is adopted and born from an aristrocrat and commoner. This sister, Louise (Dorothy Gish) loses her sight and is taken to the city for a cure by the other sister, Henriette (Lillian Gish). Various adventures take place.
