Helen of Troy | 2002
Miniseries about Helen of Troy. A savage war raged around the walls of Troy for ten years over the beauty of one woman, Helen of Troy. Her father had kept Helen prisoner in her own house, terrified that other men's desire to possess Helen's goddess-like beauty would destroy his kingdom. Helen was allowed in public only after he arranged her marriage. Her husband and his allies quickly realized that Helen's beauty could cause a devastating war, so they vowed that no one would sleep with Helen -- not even her husband. Unfortunately, a young warrior, Paris of Troy, knew nothing of the vow. The minute he and Helen saw each other, they fell in love. They risked everything to be together, sparking ancient history's greatest war. Helen's was the face that launched a thousand ships against the city of Troy.
