Trivia

Interesting to learn that Dan the Elder in the film played by Dave Bald Eagle has his Belgian wife, Josie, playing in the film as the Museum shop woman. Such a juxtaposition to their roles in the film to be married! Apparently they were short of an actress, and Steve heard she once was one. There is a lot behind the making of this film which is fascinating. We learnt quite a bit of it at the Q&A session at the premier in Edinburgh. See more »

Captures the essence and spirit of the book

The book was recommended to me several years ago and I devoured every word. Words cannot begin to express the feelings and thoughts that engulfed me throughout this film. It is an excellent representation of the book. Of course it doesn't portray the entirety of the book, that would take far too long. The spirit of Dan's teachings from the book is definitely felt in this film adaptation. The emotion that is shown in the film doesn't feel like acting. I cannot imagine a better adaptation of a book. It is a slow moving film, but I don't think the purpose is to provide an action packed entertainment opportunity. The book certainly isn't. To wrap this rambling up, this film most certainly captures the essence and spirit of the book.
