You know what a sure sign of a great actor is? You never remember his/her name, because they disappear so completely in their characters. This guy here is that kind of actor. I can never remember his name. Sir Philip Anthony Hopkins by Norman Jean Roy.
Anthony Hopkins as Colonel William Ludlow, retiree from the US Army & Native American advocate; relocates to a far removed part of Montana to raise his sons, Alfred (Aidan Quinn), Tristan (Brad Pitt) & his youngest son, Samuel (Henry Thomas).
