| What's missing here
While the story has been cut down to the bare bones, it's still watchable if you haven't read the novel. What's missing in the reduced cast of characters is a spot for Zahn Mclarnon as Annie Bird's protector, Gordon.

This is a big, sprawling story with a large cast of characters whittled down below the bare basic story that's still waiting to be told on film. The script was sidetracked into a socially relevant myopia that zooms in on the detail of native women being disappeared. While that is relevant, it isn't the whole picture.

To avoid dismissing a good film because it isn't the whole story, let's just agree that more could have been done with the fine novel, "Through Black Spruce".
