It's a very deliberatly slow movie, taking place in a modern Indian reserve in the US. The story is as modern as possible, depicting modern day problems of modern Indians who work in the dairy of their neighbors maintaining an uneasy coexistance with very little love or respect lost between the neighbors. The story is the story of the Indians, it moves along at their pace of living. In which every action is very deliberate and carefully thought out.
It's very much like watching a slowmo of a train wreck. We all know it's going to end badly, and yet we can't look away. In fact the director could've decided to finish his movie five minute later, and it would've been a down right tragedy, but he chose to end it when he did, so we can still believe there's a chance for a happier ending. It's not a rational belief, but it's the ending we all want to take place.
The actors are all very real, some of them not professional, or doing their first steps as actors, none of them is a big star, but they all play their part perfectly. The film plays like a documentary, and in a way it is trying to be a document of this train wreck called the life of native Americans in modern day U.S.
