Lt. John Dunbar is dubbed a hero after he accidentally leads Union troops to a victory during the Civil War. He requests a position on the western frontier, but finds it deserted. He soon finds out he is not alone, but meets a wolf he dubs "Two-socks" and a curious Indian tribe.

Only a white man would make a fire for everyone to see.
Maybe there's more than one.
There may be three or four.
I know three or four who will not be making the trip home.

Dances with Wolves is a great movie, make no mistake about that, Kevin
Costner had lighting in a bottle. Costner has not come close to movie
success since wolves. The cast is excellent, Kicking Bird, Stands with
Fist, Wind in his Hair and my quiet favorite smiles a lot, smiles a Lot
had trouble with growing up and becoming a brave, until it is forced
on him, his mood after he has killed the first time is priceless.
Some people say Dances with Wolves was an anti white movie, that is
total bull, it tells the true story the way few movies have of the
cruelty of the white people. People don't want to admit this movie is a
true telling of the way white people treat other races and nature. It
is a hard movie to digest.It is a hard movie to admit the truth. The
other thought is a lot of movie fans want car chases and explosions. If
a movie is thoughtful, it is labeled boring. Dances is one of the top
15 movies of all time. 9 out of 10 stars.
Dances with wolves I am wind in his hair Do you see that I am your
friend? Can you see that you will always be my friend?
