A Civil War era soldier befriends a Sioux tribe.

I was expecting this to be much worse. Three hours of Kevin Costner in a story about historical injustice? But it turns out to be entirely watchable. They keep things quite morally complex, considering how preachy it would have been in the hands of a lot of filmmakers.

First rate film of Michael Blake's excellent novel, lovingly made and acted. Music reminds me of "Out of Africa," which makes sense since both scores were by John Barry. If you like the movie, do read the book, it won't disappoint, and has a slightly more upbeat ending. ( )
