I have studied American Natives for some twenty plus years and so far this film hit very close to home. Their (the American Natives) humanity is portrayed more realistically as I have ever seen or read during my research. In it's time, Dances With Wolves had the 'nod' that nod now goes to Into The West.
I bought it and watch it more often than I like to admit. I guess, 16 Emmy nominations says more than I could ever say.
However I would very much like to find the real music /(score) from the film "Into The West" not the CD of the same name. With the same Title and cover design. It's just not quite the same music as was in the film although it is very nice ti listen to.
