Older Than America Reviews
this is a must see movie based on facts. I'll let you read the synopsis for the story line. in two words this film is WELL CRAFTED. everything from the actors, the directing, the editing, and including the score is beautifully done.
recommended for serious collectors, definitely. do I own it? not yet but I'm going to as soon as I can find a copy.
It's nothing more than the director/female lead Lightnings dedication to her Father telling the tale of the abuse native Indians suffered at the hands of church governed boarding schools.
Whilst the subject matter is sensitive & important the film is just a lead up to some subtitles post script from Amnesty International giving you some history & statistics.
It's simple, nothing happens. So suspense, no tension. Just bad acting. Cooper has so little screen time it's almost his best performance. To say it's based on true events is the only thing you can agree with but that's cos usually true events are generally quite dull.
