Rate this:
The screen adaption of Guy Vanderhaeghe's award winning novel, The Englishman's boy, is an expressive and unforgettable tale of deceit, manipulation, guilt and voilence set against the dual backdrops of an unforgiving 1873 North American frontier and the allure of 1920's Hollywood. This haunting film recalls a tragic journey that culminates in one of the most brutal historical events in Canadian history-- the Cypress Hills Massacre.--Container.

The implied brutality to horses was such a turnoff. I know thousands of horses died on the Klondike Trail and in the old west, but a good cowboy valued his horse and treated it as a respected tool of his livelihood.

A Canadian western from a book by Guy vanderHaegen. I had the read the book which was excellent. The movie benefited from the author and a lot of dedication to make it authentic. An excellent movie from script to acting to directing. Highly recommend.
