Graceful character and communal study. A clean narrative line but also a series of fascinating offramps and loops.
Tantoo Cardinal, the Métis star you know from moremovies than you think, is intensely charismatic in this leading role. Hope folks see it!
Disinclination to reinvent the wheel is part of its appeal. Still, rare in its casting, and brave in its refusal to fill every gap.
