PG-13 | | Adventure, Drama, Western
Lieutenant John Dunbar, assigned to a remote western Civil War outpost, befriends wolves and Indians, making him an intolerable aberration in the military.
Included among the "1001 Movies You Must See Before You Die", edited by Steven Schneider.
It seems every day ends with a miracle here. And whatever God may be, I thank God for this day.
When Dunbar arrives at the settlement, rough planks are being cut from tree trunks at a rudimentary sawmill. There are no forests seen from which such timber could be harvested nor a means for transporting timber of this size from a remote location.
Some home video versions contain Costner's original four-hour European cut, with scenes cut from the U.S. version. A similar longer version, minus some violence and objectionable scenes, has been shown on network television"
