When I watched this film I was expecting something of an action adventure film but instead this film is quite a tender lover story, and is probably a better film because of it. Based around the true story of the first European colonists of America and there interactions with the native peoples the film concentrates on the love that develops between Captain John Smith and Pocahontas. Colin Farrell and Christopher Plummer are great in their respective parts but I do feel that Christian Bale, despite giving a great performance, is wasted in the part that he had. The star of the film though is most defiantly Q'orianka Kilcher playing the Native American princess Pocahontas. The film has been beautifully shot and although I cannot comment on its historical accuracy The New World is definitely worth watching.
