The movie implies Caroline and Sitting Bull had no connection prior to her arrival in Standing Rock, which is inaccurate. They began corresponding around 1888, after Sitting Bull was in Washington, discussing fair prices for Dakota land and maps of the government's plans to reduce the size of the tribes' reservations at length.

BRILLIANT MOVIE ABOUT & BY A WOMAN WHO WALKS AHEAD
Susanna White, the director of WOMAN WALKS AHEAD creates a movie that takes historical facts & transforms them into a stunningly beautiful tale of search, discovery, redemption & the powerful reality of creativity & defeat. Jessica Chastain gives a deeply human portrait of a woman on the edge of a new world where nothing is as it should be and she discovers what is most important and significant for all individuals seeking a higher truth. The acting across the board is excellent- Susanna White has a very special way with actors that brings out the best in them without any overcompensation of "acting." This movie is so beautiful shot & edited it could be viewed as a silent film loaded with natural physical beauty (New Mexico) that overwhelms the eyes, brain & heart. I suggest anyone who cares about the future of real movies, directed with an original sensibility sorely lacking in most movies today, submit to this courageous & heartfelt exploration of
indigenous people & a single white soul lost in history and revealed in WOMAN WALKS AHEAD.
