About the Movie

History gets the Disney kiddie treatment and a politically correct interpretation in the studio's 33rd feature-length animated movie, the first to be based on actual events and people. Pocahontas (Irene Bedard) is the daughter of Algonquin chief Powhatan (Russell Means), who promises her in marriage to Kocoum, a brave whom she doesn't love. Pocahontas would rather be paddling in her canoe or wandering in the forest, communing with nature and her animal pals, Meeko, a raccoon, and the hummingbird Flit. When European settlers arrive, she becomes enamored of handsome John Smith (Mel Gibson). Their attraction is encouraged by Grandmother Willow (Linda Hunt), a talking tree. The situation between their peoples is tense, however, as the settlers, led by Governor Ratcliffe (David Ogden Stiers) desperately want the gold that they're sure the natives are concealing. When a dutiful sentry, Thomas (Christian Bale) follows Smith into the woods on one of his secret meetings with Pocahontas, a tragic mistake leads both groups to the brink of war. Only the love of Pocahontas and Smith can prevent bloodshed. Pocahontas (1995) was awarded two Oscars, for Best Original Musical or Comedy Score and Best Original Song for "Colors of the Wind."

Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: Any damage such revisionist history may impose on young minds is offset by the honestly inspiring thoughts Pocahontas offers. – Janet Maslin, New York Times, Sep 2, 2008

Rotten: Why make a Disney cartoon and take all the fun out of it? – Owen Gleiberman, Entertainment Weekly, Jul 7, 2010

Fresh: Disney deserves praise for raising the ante on its ambitions in animation. Next time, though, a little less civics lesson and a little more heart. – Peter Travers, Rolling Stone, Sep 2, 2008

Rotten: Adult viewers, spoiled by what has come before, may feel that this film, which relates the legendary romance between a chief's daughter and English adventurer John Smith in the New World, is more by-the-numbers than inspired. – Kenneth Turan, Los Angeles Times, Sep 2, 2008
