Lakota Woman: Siege At Wounded Knee (1994) C-100m. *** D: Frank Pierson. Irene Bedard, Joseph Runningfox, Floyd Red Crow Westerman, Tantoo Cardinal, Michael Horse, Lawrence Hayne, Lois Red Elk, August Schellenberg. The odyssey of Mary Crow Dog is muted in this TNT version depicting childhood, teenage aimlessness and purpose as a member of the American Indian Movement. Evocative, well-made and cast with an authentic script by Bill Kerby that reflects how this woman was led to the famous 1973 siege. Bedard is excellent in the lead. Based on the autobiographical book Lakota Woman by Richard Erodes and Crow Dog, who can be glimpsed in peyote scene.
