Did You Know?


Sam and Bonnie are twins, but in actuality, Zachery Ty Bryan is six months older than Kirsten Dunst. See more »


A hand-drawn star map shows the handle of the Big Dipper pointing to the North Star (which is in the Little Dipper), and Khonanesta describes using the Big Dipper to find the North Star as shown on the map. This would not work. Actually the two stars in the front of the bowl of the Big Dipper point to the North Star. The handle points to various directions depending on the season, but never towards the North Star. See more »

An entertaining family movie.
23 June 2002 | by (Illinois) – See all my reviews

This is an entertaining family movie, with gorgeous scenery and wonderful native music throughout. While the plot gets a little far-fetched in spots, it is still fun to watch. Kirsten Dunst turned in a terrific performance, and the subtle moral lesson is an added bonus.

My only real problem with this movie is the repeated reference to the Kodiak. This movie takes place in British Columbia, Canada, but the Kodiak Bear (a sub-species of the Brown or Grizzly Bear) is only found on the isolated Kodiak Island, Alaska.
