W.P. Kinsella actually didn't care for this movie and the TV show, "The Rez" that followed. Even though they were based on his writing. He considered both the movie and television show to be of poor quality. See more »
At the risk of sounding like an advocate, "Dance Me Outside" was an intriguing and important film. In an age of entertainment bombarded by white culture, and white values, and white people, it becomes increasingly necessary for people of color to be in film. This movie, although romantic in its interpretation of reservation life, shows the very real problem plaguing the non-white people of Canada in their efforts to attend post secondary institutions, as well as prejudices surrounding inter-racial relationships. More than this, the film makes a statement about consequences of imposing white values on the aboriginal people-- or any communities of color for that matter, and stereotyping. It does all this, and its entertaining, with a dark humor. As for the acting, performances by Adam Beach and Ryan Black were outstanding. This was a very good film. 4/5
