Bury My Heart at Wounded Knee

HD

Beginning just after the bloody Sioux victory over General Custer at Little Big Horn, Bury My Heart at Wounded Knee intertwines the perspectives of three characters: Charles Eastman, né Ohiyesa, a young, Dartmouth-educated, Sioux doctor held up as living proof of the alleged success of assimilation; Sitting Bull, the proud Lakota chief who refuses to submit to U.S. government policies designed to strip his people of their identity, their dignity and their sacred land - the gold-laden Black Hills of the Dakotas; and Senator Henry Dawes, who was one of the architects of the government policy on Indian affairs. While Eastman and patrician schoolteacher Elaine Goodale work to improve life for the Indians on the reservation, Senator Dawes lobbies President Grant for more humane treatment, opposing the bellicose stance of General William Tecumseh Sherman. Hope rises for the Indians in the form of the prophet Wovoka and the Ghost Dance - a messianic movement that promises an end of their suffering under the white man. This hope is obliterated after the assassination of Sitting Bull and the massacre of hundreds of Indian men, women and children by the 7th Cavalry at Wounded Knee Creek on Dec. 29, 1890....

Review

Bury My Heart at Wounded Knee is one of my favorite movies from year 2007. In the Australia, Bury My Heart at Wounded Knee became one of the highest grossed Drama movies. I know it gets a lot of stick for being the mainstream popular movie, but honestly I can not think of anything wrong with this movie online. The main actor plays extremely suggestively, naturally and emotionally. His creation is undoubtedly one of the best in this film and also one of the best in the actor's career. The director of Bury My Heart at Wounded Knee is really a genius. I regret that I did not see online Bury My Heart at Wounded Knee before, although I had the opportunity. I did not find this movie elsewhere, so I decided to upload it to this website.... Show more
