Awesome movie !! Everybody should see it. You'll cry when Tony says he's sorry for being white. It is a tender scene.

American history that isn't taught in schools! More should be taught about the contribution of Native Americans to the mainstream culture. Perhaps one day a N.A. president?

I liked this movie. Mostly, I like it because it is based on history although it is only partly accurate. It has a hint of the very common "White Savior" theme which was much more common in American movies in the last century,

The most recent for me was Oliver Stone's "Trade Center". The movie's actual real life hero an American Marine who is also African American was purposely recasted as a White American.

Therefore, there might be some pushback as we closer to the Oscars.
