Movie Review: Lieutenant John Dunbar, assigned to a remote western Civil War outpost, befriends wolves and Native Americans, making him an intolerable aberration in the military.
Authors Note: Perhaps Kevin Costner’s greatest film of all time! An absolute masterpiece, it is no surprise this film won 7 Oscars and was nominated for 12! Watching this will give you fantastic insight into the American Civil War and frontier exploration. It also changes your perspective on the colonial transformation of the Americans and the struggles faced by Native Americans during hostilities. Find yourself a cosy Sunday afternoon to make your way through this three-hour marathon, but beware, your emotions will be tested as you grow to care for the story and characters. Fans of “The Revenant” will love this film.
