Audience Reviews for The Education of Little Tree

  • Oct 09, 2008
    The film takes a historical look at what Charaokee Indians had went through during some of there early struggle (through stories) and there continuing struggle well into 1930s (the actual time-frame of the movie). It's an interesting film with some interesting facts and insight into a time for the indian ancestors that has not been documented so well. The actors are all fairly good. The movie is funny and sad, with a bit of action. Overall the movie is a decent watch that anyone who liikes a little drama, history, and has respect for nature will enjoy. The downfall is the movie is really slow... and the pace never picks up. It's just a slow slow, 2 hour film that sort of bounces around to some scenes that really were in the movie strictly to make it longer that probably didnt need to be there. Nonetheless, it's good.
