Five years after the Civil War, Captain Jefferson Kyle Kidd (Academy Award® winner Tom Hanks) moves from town to town as a non-fiction storyteller, sharing the news from the far reaches of the globe. In the plains of Texas, he crosses paths with a 10-year-old girl taken in by the Kiowa people and raised as one of their own. Kidd agrees to deliver the child where the law says she belongs. As they travel hundreds of miles into the unforgiving wilderness, the two face tremendous challenges of both human and natural forces as they search for a place they can call home.


  • Exceptional plot line

    By jwkfjfurjensnd
    This movie is a great movie to watch as a family. The plot line is one of the best of the year. The film quality is also amazing.
  • Great book, disappointing movie

    By The book is WAY better
    I'll never understand how script writers can adapt a film from an existing book that is excellent and somehow make a worse story with bad characters that lack development or meaning.
  • Best Movie

    I’ve been a big fan of the western genre all my life. At 18 I wouldn’t like this movie as I was John Wayne/Clint Eastwood shoot ‘em up seeking. My taste in the western has evolvedWith Silverado, unforgiven, Appaloosa,And now I gladly add this movie to my list. No it’s not the OK corral. The battles are more internal then acted outWith bullets and blood shed. Way more true to life But also a testament to growing older. I hope everybody makes it to the point in life where they can appreciate the story that’s told in this movie whether it be through this movie or another.
  • Its a Drama, Not Action

    By MadRienell
    Like my title says, watch this movie with the understanding that it's a drama, it's not an adventure or action movie. There are a few action scenes but nothing like a wild western. You can't appreciate this movie after watching say, Tombstone and expecting it to be like that. Its a heartfelt story about a man doing the right thing by helping a young lady find her way. I really enjoyed it and found it refreshing. I thought Tom Hanks was great in this. It's not five star keeper, but definitely one you should see. (when the rental price goes down or you find it elsewhere.)

  • Should Have Passed

    I was tempted to pay the $19.99 to RENT this. Glad I didn’t pay that amount. It wasn’t as good as I hoped. The writing and direction of the story could have been better. Way better.
  • Hanks is as usual amazing

    By TetonAdjacent
    A fantastic western drama with amazing cinematography. Loved the idea of traveling town to town to read the news to the locals. Also the young actress that played Johanna (Cicada) was great and was able to keep up with Hanks! Definitely check this one out if you enjoy Westerns that involves more than just gunfights.
