The synopsis below may give away important plot points. Synopsis This is a wonderful yet heartrending period piece, as told by an elderly Native American through a collection of family letters he accumulated and saved over time.
The right and proper Colonel William Ludlow, Anthony Hopkinsa veteran of the Native American wars that took place in the late 19th century, has grown tired of the carnage and futility of war. Moreover, he detests the governments and their greed that propagated the battles he has fought.
In the opening sequence, the teepees have been struck, the fires, billowing white smoke as they symbolically die out, along with the hope and freedom of "the People. Then a child is seen by his side, and the mood changes as the realization that the look in his eyes is not one of the victor, but that of sadness as he has come to know and respect the People, and forcing them from their home has brought him to his breaking point.
He tosses his saber and sheath into the ground in disgust, viewing his humbled former enemy, and turns his back to the camera, and on his former life. The scene is similar to "Bury My Heart at Wounded Knee" in that the Native Americans, those who survived, are seen defeated and disheartened, abandoning what was once their home.
Hopkins takes his wife, Cristina Pickles three sons, Brad Pitt, Aidan Quinn and Henry Thomasand trusted Cree guide, One Stab, excellent perfomance by Gordon Tootoosis, who also narratesand his family on a quest to "lose the madness over the mountains and begin again.
The scenery alone is reason enough to let yourself become lost in this film; temporarily lost from the madness. Their mother has decided to leave the ranch, citing the winters as too cruel, as well as being afraid of the bears.
Corresponding with her husband, Mrs. From the moment she and Samuel step from the train, the reaction to her beauty and grace by both the Colonel and Alfred, the viewer begins to sense discord on the horizon.
Alfred is clearly taken by her, but the attention shifts quickly away to the absence of Tristan. Observing this, Hopkins, as only he can, delivers one of the few humorous lines in the film; embarrassing Alfred by catching him off-guard, standing out of sight, he admonishes him from the porch of the ranch: Stop mooning over Miss Fincannon and get in here.
Samuel is quick to point out to his father that with his fluent German, he could become an officer. Alfred immediately proclaims he will accompany his brother. Later the same evening, Susannah is being comforted by Tristan, holding her as she cries over the prospect of her beloved Samuel unnecessarily going off to war.
Thus begins the tear in the bond of brotherhood once so strong nothing could come between them.
What follows is at times predicable, but the rest makes up for the few parts the viewer can see coming and then some. The story is an epic tale of right and wrong, family, love, and how life can be at once beautiful and unrelentingly cruel, especially where matters of the heart are concerned.
This is an unjustly overlooked piece of celluloid, worthy of many more accolades it originally received. Frankly, while some may argue "Kalifornia" or "Thelma and Louise" had already accomplished this, I think "Legends" established Pitt as a more talented and serious actor than his previous work.
The performances, how can anyone go wrong with such brilliant casting?Testing Programs. To insure the continued quest for improvement of performance, regulations were established which require that all Deutsch-Drahthaar used for breeding must first meet certain hunting performance standards.
