A Must-See Film
4 April 2002 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

"Medicine River" is a very moving picture. It follows Will Horse Capture (Graham Greene), a Metis man, on his journey of self-discovery, as he returns to his hometown following the death of his mother. Along the way, through the help of friend Harlen Bigbear (Tom Jackson) and others, he is slowly re-introduced to many townspeople and tribal elders. This movie is beautifully scripted and acted.
