In the late 19th century, the U.S. government waged a systematic campaign to exterminate American Indians--and nobody seemed to care. 'HBO Films' presents this epic adaptation of Dee Brown's nonfiction masterpiece that brought this dark chapter of U.S. history to light. Beginning just after the bloody Sioux victory over General Custer at Little Big Horn, the film intertwines the unique perspectives of three characters--Charles Eastman, Sitting Bull and Senator Henry Dawes--while detailing the sprawl into the American West that tragically affected American Indian culture. Aidan Quinn, Adam Beach, Anna Paquin, August Schellenberg and J.K. Simmons (HBO's 'Oz') head up a tremendous ensemble cast. Directed by Yves Simoneau; screenplay by Daniel Giat; based on the book by Dee Alexander Brown.
