‘Dances with Wolves’

Academy-awarded epic film ‘Dances with Wolves’ which tells the moving tale of a Civil War-era United States lieutenant who travels to the American Frontier to find a military post, will be screened at 2.30 pm on Thursday January 22, 2009 at American Centre, Colombo-3.

Directed and starred by Kevin Costner, the film was released in 1990 after developing over five years and it won 7 Academy Awards and the Golden Globe Award for Best Motion Picture - Drama together with another 30 wins and 20 nominations

The film opens on a particularly dark note, as melancholy Union lieutenant John W. Dunbar sets out on a suicide mission, but instead becomes an unintentional hero. His actions lead to his reassignment to a remote post in remote South Dakota, where he encounters the Sioux. Attracted by the natural simplicity of their lifestyle, he chooses to leave his former life behind to join them, taking on the name Dances with Wolves.

Others in the cast include Mary McDonnell, Graham Greene, Rodney A. Grant, Floyd ‘Red Crow’ Westerman, Tantoo Cardinal and Robert Pastorel.
