Week 41: South Dakota (Dances with Wolves)

Quote of Interest:
“Somebody back east is sayin’, ‘Why don’t he write??'”–timmons
Three words to describe this film/state: Accepted and adopted
- Pretty Shield, played by Doris Leader Charge
- Toughest Pawnee, played by Wes Studi
Earring Inspo Character: Stands with a Fist
Other Notes: Another three-hour war movie, but not another war movie. There’s something classic about this one, with its quirky characters/conversational humor in the beginning, its warmth, and its genuineness without trying too hard. More on the theme of war/the stupidity of man, but most of the focus was on the humanity and potential of man to love and live in harmony with others.
