“Itu0026#39;s no secret that movies mix a lot of fiction with the facts. This film seems to have rubbed both history buffs and fans of the book the wrong way, but I thought it was a compelling, evocative film nevertheless.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eStarting off where most movies end, at a CGI created overhead shot of The Little Big Horn (!), this instead focuses on the final years of the Unions war against the Indian nations, culminating in the massacre at Wounded Knee.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eThereu0026#39;s a really great role for Adam Beach, as a young Souix doctor, whou0026#39;s father turned his back on the native ways and sent him to live amongst whites at a young age, stripping him of his identity.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eAugust Schellenberg is excellent here as Sitting Bull, whou0026#39;s determination and pride stokes the anger of the powers that be, including Aiden Quinn, a sympathetic but patronizing Senator who has taken it upon himself to lead the Indians on a path to u0026quot;civilizationu0026quot;.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eAnyone who watched the myriad Cavalry pictures and Little Big Horn epics should see this and find out how the whole sad story ends.”
