A True Story,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Tell Them Willie Boy Is Here - Digitally Remastered [DVD] (DVD)
The content was presented in a very authentic manner, however, the movie feels dated, the characters suffer from the fact that the Indian roles are played by actors who aren't ethnically accurate. If you get over this fact, let's face it, when Elvis played Joe in Stay Away Joe, he did have some native American heritage. Here, the clunky Hollywood process doesn't manage to do too much damage to a brilliant telling of a very dynamic true story and each time Robert Redford steps into shot, the quality of dialogue delivery is superb.
I still love this film for the integrity of telling the story of a great injustice being perpetrated against the indigenous people of the USA and delivering the story in a sensitive and timely telling.
