A story of life on a First Nations reserve in Ontario: Silas and Frank are trying to get into college to train to be mechanics but they find themselves having to deal with girls, family ... and murder.Written by
i loved this movie so much (it's descendant television series THE REZ is also wonderful was well)...Ryan Rajendra Black as Silas Crow was wondering and Jennifer Podemski embodies the strong native woman as Sadie Miracle...and Frank Fencepost...what can i say? Adam Beach was BRILLANT! My favorite lines of his are "There's a truck full of ugly" and when he is introduced to Sila's sister's white husband he says "HOW" and how could you not love them singing "Half Breed" in the truck after giving McVee his "indian name" this movie was wonderfully funny, and yet strikingly poignant as it touched on the injustice of Native Americans in the US and Canada. Tamara Podemski was a wonderful Little Margaret which made it horrible to see her white killer only get 2 years in prison for manslaughter...while his murderer would be charge with murder-1. It really makes you think...
