Summary:

Lieutenant John Dunbar is a Civil War soldier sent to man a solo frontier fort in Lakota Sioux territory.  He befriends the local Native Americans and is given the name Dances With Wolves because of his relationship with a wolf called Two Socks. By the end of the film the army consider him a deserter and arrive to hang him.

Review:

This is one of the most interesting and unusual Western tales because the Sioux are heroes and the bluecoats are the enemy.  The scenery is amazing – shot on location in the Dakotas- and the acting is superb.
