The New World (25-Dec-2005)

Keywords: Action/Adventure, New York

Historical epic recounts early British exploration of Virginia and the tale of Pocahontas.

Three ships containing sailors from Great Britain arrive at North America in April 1607, intending to claim the territory as their own in a bid to expand the reaches of their native empire; aboard one of the vessels is 27-year old John Smith, a plucky -- if rebellious -- young explorer whose charm leads him into a complicated relationship with Pocahontas, daughter of all-powerful native Chief Powhatan, setting the stage for a conflict between English-speaking interlopers and a distraught indigenous population. Polarizing amongst critics and audiences alike, The New World is certainly a more realistic tale than Disney's Pocahontas and a worthy watch if you stick with its expansive narrative.
