A Union solder is stationed at the far edges of the West, and left there to rot at his post. He finally sees the wisdom of the Lakota Sioux and finds peace within their community. But his decision to “go native” is greatly frowned upon by his military commanders, and the subsequent culture clash forms the backbone of the narrative.
This is an epic film that has great acting from Kevin Costner and Mary McDonnell. It has adventure, romance and drama. The landscape is also stunning.
