People who don't read history books are unaware that a huge number of "cowboys" driving herds to the railheads in Kansas were Indians. And many don't know that some of "Indians" who raided the drives for beef in the the "nations" were runaway slaves and ex-slaves adopted into the tribes in the Oklahoma territory. Western movies don't tell you that.
It must have been a sad year for movies if this was "One of the Best Pictures of the Year". I had to keep re-committing myself to the 2 1/2 hours; it was such a disappointment. The only thing I loved was the horse (and a couple of times the sappy John Williams music made me cry). ~4/12/12
