25 July 2004 | by (HUXLEY,IOWA) – See all my reviews

I saw this movie for the first time a few years ago on the Lifetime channel on cable.This story is powerful, sad,and amazing, all wrapped into one movie. It is a stunning portrayal of racism, and if you see this movie you will not forget it.I was riveted from the very first moment to the very last moment of the film.I felt the anguish, fear, horror, and terror that the young Cree girl went through. This movie is not for entertainment purposes, but to show what prejudice and hate can do to a country, town, and to the residents who live there.The writing was excellent. The cast of the movie was excellent too.I think that Canadian films are so good.The setting with the frozen countryside just added to the desperation of the characters and the story.I saw this movie again recently, and I was just as moved as the first time that I saw it.The thing that stood out for me the most, was that due to one man's caring, empathy, and tenacity, a beautiful, innocent, little Cree girl finally received some sort of justice.It was not the justice that I thought it should be, but at least some of the people involved were held accountable to a certain degree.I think every person in this world should see this movie.It will make you stop and think what prejudice can do.I highly recommend this movie to everyone, especially the young, so they might learn before it is too late what hate can do.
