: Hi Jo,
: War Party sounds interesting. What is it all about? I checked the Imdb, but her name wasn't listed among the cast...
: I had a walking cast when I broke my foot 3 months ago. However I wasn't able to walk.A lot of things went wrong...Due to physio I am FINALLY able to walk a bit although I won't be doing any hiking etc. for a while. But I am sure grateful that I can be mobile WITHOUT crutches.
Sorry about the delay in answering; War Party is a 1989 movie about the reenactment of a battle between the Blackfoot Indian Tribe and the US Calvery; the time is the "present" now adays; the "young ones" get together for this reeactment; however; one of the "white young ones" actually loads his gun to make a real battle instead of a reenactment.
Someone told me of this film a long time ago, in a place .....actually,
I saw it so long ago; it started out very interesting; with the Indian youth on the reservation, dealing with current problems, getting ready for this reenactment and thier feelings about it, etc. (This is where I thought Tantoo is the mom of one of the youths)but as the movie unfolds; what was a very interesting idea becomes a rather pathetic cowboys and Indians stuff.
As I rented it out of a drug store; might not be still around.
(who is very glad you are off crutches, Rebecca,
My hope to you for a complete recovery without cast and no pain in the toes!!!)
