Review:

What possessed the designer to come up with a full-facial image for the design is mystifying. You don't sell a story like this with such an in-your-face design.

Review:

Resembling any number of American dramas about Native American oppression by the English, this film doesn't seem to present much more than a historical exploration of a nation's history. Everything else has been done ad nauseum.

Oscar Prospects:

It was submitted for consideration for last year's Academy Awards, but failed to make the final five. Therefore, it's eligible this year, but unlikely to go any further than it already has.
