Hellen I like the storyline of this show,it attract me so much
Mjeteconer Just perfect...
Megamind To all those who have watched it: I hope you enjoyed it as much as I do.
Gutsycurene Fanciful, disturbing, and wildly original, it announces the arrival of a fresh, bold voice in American cinema.
leamccormickmusic I absolutely loved Michael Greyeyes portrayal of one of the most iconic Native people in history. It was refreshing to see a Native person being seen as a 3 dimensional person with a sense of humor, intelligence, humility, etc. I am a native woman and was delighted to see our people seen as people. The story wasn't word for word accurate but the heart of the story was captured with grace & dignity. Thank you for making this film and respecting the person & people it represents.
Polar-Night Can Jessica Chastain do any wrong? Every project she chooses has beauty and sophistication.I'm saddened by the ignorant and imprudent reviews which I read this week. Especially someone calling it "listless". The ongoing hype on action movies and the many dialogues in movies have seemingly numbed the senses of the average moviegoers as they cannot anymore feel without touch, hear without words and see without movement.. The movie contains so many touching moments, relatable characters, an emotional bond between the leads, a sensitive approach to a dark material and a stunning cinematography which will make me watch the movie again on the big screen.Since the topic on Native American rights, Standing Rock and pipelines is as relevant as ever, this movie is of great importance and should not be treated as a forgettable indie film - Shame on the so-called critics.The Native Americans are treated and depicted respectfully by giving them character traits, letting them speak in their own language and showing their bond with nature and their understanding of life. In all movies about Native Americans which I watched, there has always been strong violence, humiliation and vulgarism. Noteworthily is the final shot of a white horse dancing upon hearing a gun shot accompanied by Jessica Chastain's painting-like suffering on the ground - with her loose and long hair which emphasises her long-awaited freedom ! So happy to finally watch a female Western about Native Americans, which is as beautiful as a Romantic painting and as touching as an elegy.
adonis98-743-186503 Catherine Weldon, a portrait painter from 1890s Brooklyn, travels to Dakota to paint a portrait of Sitting Bull and becomes embroiled in the Lakota peoples' struggle over the rights to their land. Even with Jessica Chastain and Sam Rockwell in specific roles 'Woman Walks Ahead' can't do what it's meant to do which is to entertain and tell a full story. The film at times feels kind of comedic and at others a bit dramatic, the acting was really good but the script did lacked alot. The story as it is was kind of interesting but the execution wasn't that well and it's disappointing to say the least cause Ms. Chastain is a terrific and talented actress and this movie didn't gave her what she needed.
gkhege Mercy, what a slaughter of the legend of Sitting Bull. Basically you have a simple story of, woman paints picture of Native American. Worst western I have ever seen in fifty-years.
