Should've gotten the attention that was showered on "Smoke Signals"
9 February 1999 | by (Brookline, MA) – See all my reviews

This is a really fine little film that far outshines the much more commented-upon "Smoke Signals". The dialogue rings true, and the characters are more than 2-D stereotypes. Some serious issues about reservation life are dealt with fairly and honestly, without falling back on condescending plot contrivances.
