"Bury My Heart at Wounded Knee" (the book) was required reading in one of my English classes in high school. A very tragic American story. It's amazing that twenty soldiers were awarded the Medal of Honor for their part in what is now called a massacre.Bury My Heart at Wounded Knee (2007) HBO made for TV - Decent telling of a very sad but true story. Acting was ok. The Native American actors did a much better job than some of the others. Fred Thompson was a bit clunky as President Grant.
I thought the entire cast was pretty great. The trailer makes it look like a goofy comedy, and certainly has a Wes Anderson vibe in its comedic elements. However, it’s also very poignant and emotional in its story telling.Can you believe Scarlett Johansson's performance? I could not have been more impressed.
