Very Good Historical Movie-good actors-good script
27 July 2004 | by See all my reviews

Good historical movie without being sickeningly PC. Script intelligently done and is believable.

Nice conflicts between cultures, well defined, and interesting to see education defined as "white man's culture".

Good actors in this movie, and good acting. Characters well developed and interesting.

Strong Indian character who learns that there is a lot that is good in the white man's culture.

Strong black characters who tout the values of the white culture and education to the Indian.

Ron Glass in a good part; one in which he plays a black educator with high moral values.

Very good bonding between characters; you felt a lot of friendship displayed.

Directing and casting first-rate: all in all an excellent movie.
