Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Filmed for British television in 1986, The New World made it to American shores in 1988. Bernard Hill and James Fox star in this dramatization of the founding of the Plymouth Colony. The dramatic thrust of the film is a power struggle between two self-appointed pilgrim leaders. Betsy Brantley co-stars as the romantic bone of contention between the antagonists. The New World was seen on American cable TV through the facilities of the Disney Channel.
