Quotes

Mollie: I don't know... sometimes I feel like... I ain't scared no more. You know? I mean, jesus christ what else could happen right? The worst already has. But then I see the empty chair at the table. I open up the closet and see her clothes. And I just sink all over again. Maybe in time I'll get better at pulling myself up.

gut wrenching, excellent!
12 March 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I cry every time I see it, I recorded it on VCR. The white haired medicine woman who appears in the beginning was a good friend of mine, she passed away shortly after the release of the movie, I briefly met Mr Sackheim at the funeral. I wish it would be made available on DVD here in the US, as I would like to keep it as a family treasure. Is there any way I could find out if and when it's made available on DVD? Perhaps HBO could show it again to spark new interest, I read the book as well and with all due respect to Mr Sarris, the movie is far better then the book, usually it's the other way around, the acting is first class and the story, although a bit tough at times is gut wrenching and eye opening to everyone interested in modern Native American life.
