Review by anonymous (posted on 25-Jan-2007)
This movie has everything...drama, comedy, action. A very sad, if not eccentric, movie about a group of young Native Americans living in Canada. The main characters (Silus and Frank) are "studying to become licensed mechanics," but before they can register to auto school they have to write a story about themselves. Thus begins the drama...Silus' older sister introduces her husband (a white, rich lawyer) to the family, her ex-Native American-boyfriend (Gooch) is finally out of prison and wants to rekindle their old flames. Silus' girlfriend, Sadie, is torn between her love for him and hate of his immaturity. At the center of all this chaos, a friend of Silus and Sadie, Little Margaret, is murdered. Sadie becomes distant from Silus in search of justice for her friend. Silus' sister wants a baby, but her husband can't "perform"...enter Gooch. A very moving and emotional movie with sharp lines ("I'm his neighbor.") and funny fire dances ("Bob Firechief").
