“Dances with Wolves! I am Wind In His Hair. Do you see that I am your friend? Can you see that you will always be my friend?” Wind in His Hair said.
As epic as this movie was, along with the racial and political implications, it seemed to be overly long and quiet. However the film making and cinematography was amazing for the 1990 release.
Here is the basic plot…A Civil War soldier develops a relationship with a band of Lakota Indians. Attracted by the simplicity of their lifestyle, he chooses to leave his former life behind to be with them. Having observed him, they give the name Dances With Wolves. Soon he is a welcomed member of the tribe and falls in love with a white woman who has been raised in the tribe. Tragedy results when Union soldiers arrive with designs on the land.
Kevin Costner directed the film and the score was composed by John Barry.
You can get the soundtrack on Amazon.
