| UNBOWED & UNIQUE
Jay Tavare's role as Waka Mani was played as if he were "born to it". Tembi Locke's portrayal as Cleola was fabulous. The combination of Jay & Tembi was beautiful. The other actors were cast precisely and "hats off" to the casting director for taking the time to hand pick each actor.

Although it is considered a western, Unbowed is much more than that. It is a story about pre-prejudices, racism that exist between two minority groups, acceptance and learning to work together towards a common goal and most of all it is a story of love. Love has no color. I highly recommend this movie.
