Low IQ Canadian

A resolutely so-so movie puffed beyond all recognition by non-First Nation critics looking to expiate their dimly-felt sense of historic debt.

Film Journal International

The central character is so superficially conceived that you never feel the force of his culture or ethnicity.

Spirituality and Practice

The film pokes fun at the interface between life on "the rez" and the dominant white culture. It also reveals how ritual and friendship can be healing medicine.

It wasn't perfectly put together, the actors were sometimes too enthusiastic or not enough ... but it really touched me.

A moving and engrossing look at life on The Rez for two Native American youths. Adam Beach's performance is admirable. Irene Bedard is gorgeous and mesmerizing.
