While there, she becomes part of the movement to help the Lakota maintain the rights for their land (Sam Rockwell is one of the hostile Army officers). Exposing these injustices never gains much dramatic traction and her relationship with the Chief has potential, but also fails to fully develop. Overall, this is an interesting historical footnote with strong performances, but not a very compelling movie. Expand

Well acted. Good cinematography. Slow paced, character driven, decent script that does have several historical inaccuracies, but also portrays some informative historical facts on the 1887 Dawes Act, the Sioux Bill, the treatment of the Hunkpapa Lakota Sioux and their leader Sitting Bull, and the unrest in the Dakota Territory. Not sure why it has the R rating, no blatant nudity or language with 2 mildly violent scenes. If you watch, not for historical accuracy, but purely for entertainment value, this is a compelling and enjoyable movie worth 7 stars IMHO! (to get the historically accurate info, I suggest looking up Sitting Bull and Catherine Weldon after watching the film) /April 2021 Expand

A film well done in all the extension of the word but enormously lackluster and too inclined towards the melodrama which lacks solidity in spite of the good interventions of its actors.

This film reminds me of Mary Shelley that I recently
A film well done in all the extension of the word but enormously lackluster and too inclined towards the melodrama which lacks solidity in spite of the good interventions of its actors.

This film reminds me of Mary Shelley that I recently saw and not because they have something in common but because both films are two good ideas with simplistic and boring executions.
