Reviews
Mine: Very impressive. Interesting story. Told very well. A must see. Was pretty much the last really good film Kevin did.
Leonard Maltin/Plot synopsis: Altogether extraordinary film (all the more so for being Costner's directing debut) about an idealistic young Civil War soldier who makes friends with a Sioux Indian tribe and, eventually, becomes one of them. Simply and eloquently told, with every element falling into place (on breathtaking South Dakota locations). A triumph in every respect. Oscar winner for Best Picture, Director, Screenplay (Michael Blake, from his novel), Original Score (John Barry), Cinematography (Dean Semler), Editing (Neil Travis), and Sound Recording. Costner has also prepared a 237m. ``special edition'' that expands the story and characterizations. Both versions are on video. Panavision.
