Dances With Wolves

"Inside everyone is a frontier waiting to be discovered"

goes the tagline. Dances With Wolves is a 1990 film starring Kevin Costner. I chose it for my entry to this week's TCP theme: western, as it's the first and probably the only one of the genre I have in my collection right now. I haven't toughened up with westerns but I buy and collect one that I like for it's quality and the way it is presented. And maybe I picked right. When I checked out 'Dances' on the Internet Movie Database I found out it won 7 oscars

Here's the plot summary with a link of the source, followed by the trailer:

Having been sent to a remote outpost in the wilderness of the Dakota territory during the American Civil War, Lieutenant John Dunbar encounters, and is eventually accepted into, the local Sioux tribe. He is known as "Dances with Wolves" to them and as time passes he becomes enamoured by the beautiful "Stands With a Fist". Not soon after, the frontier becomes the frontier no more, and as the army advances on the plains, John must make a decision that will not only affect him, but also the lives of the natives he now calls his people. ~ Written by Graeme Roy Source
