: : Thanks for posting the review, Ayesha!
: : I've been waiting for the movie to open here in Phoenix and was sure it would be this week-end, but now I found out I still have to wait 'till next Friday! They will have a special advance sreening this coming Wednesday, but we didn't get any more tickets, too bad! We'll definitely go to see it.

: Here is a link for another review of "Smoke Signals" which focuses mainly on Adam Beach. Here goes:


: The connection to LOTM? Well, that's very easy. Adam Beach starred with Eric Schweig in Squanto...

: Rebecca

There may be yet another very indirect link between Smoke Signals and LOTM; the director, Chris Eyre, was interviewed by Mick LaSalle, (and printed in the SF Chronicle on June 28.) Mr. Eyre states:
"Hollywood doesn't believe tht in 1998 you can make a movie about Indians that doesn't rely on loincloths and romanticism. ..."
Surely, he wasn't thinking of LOTM???

Am looking foreward to seeing the movie, thanks, Ayesha, for the review.
