Okay, a lot of people have problems with this movie based on its somewhat cavalier attempt (adapted from a very romanticized book) at exploring ethnic conflict/relationships between English/American colonists and Native Americans. But nonetheless, I have to say that it works for me on a shlocky-romantic-”I will find you!”-as-Madeleine-Stowe-is-being-captured sort of way. Daniel Day-Lewis, who is either outstanding or annoying, veers between both in this film. Madeleine Stowe works quite well as the daughter of the English general who falls in love with Day-Lewis’s character (who is an English/American who has been raised by Native Americans). Jodhi May is mesmerizing as Stowe’s younger sister, and the early scenes show the two sisters in some great 1750s gowns.
