  • 4 stars I was told by a Catholic church follower that his priest told his congregation to not attend the movie about sexual abuse in Boston. I can well imaging that many Catholics will be told to ignore this compelling movie and,unfortunately,too many Catholics will blindly obey.
  • 5 stars I loved this film. It would have been a great hockey film alone. Although it exposes the problems with residential schools, which has been frequently in the media, it also shows the abuse that native people suffered outside the school, from their treatment in the bar scene to the hockey arena. More than just the workers at the residential schools have to reflect on their part in the whole tragedy. Although most teachers have students read To Kill a Mocking Bird in school, it is an American fictional story. We should be reading the book this film is based on. This is our story and Canadians need to learn from it. Besides the lessons to be learnt from this film, it is an uplifting story of survival and good entertainment to boot.
  • 3 stars I agree with the suggestion that it should be shown in high school classrooms. However, there is not a chance in hell that any catholic high school would be permitted to see it or even discuss it.The Catholic church believes in denying or hiding its faults.
  • 5 stars One of the best I have seen this year.
  • This movie two thumbs up it was excellent
  • 5 stars Just went to this movie....I think it was a little mild as to what really happened....as a white person I was truly ashamed as to what went on with these children and to think it was churches that distributed the punishment....I am so very sorry and ashamed that this happened.....this is needs to be learned in schools and i hope more white people go to this movie and more movies like this are made.....
  • 5 stars While I believe that the residential schools started with good intentions, to help bring in native peoples into the ever changing Canada. To educate them and create opportunities to communicate, to work, to grow - there is no doubt there were horror stories associated. Did every individual have a bad experience? Definitely not. Indian Horse will be an awakening for those on the fence of these issues, but for those who make statements calling it propaganda - they will see it as an outright lie. They will also tell you the Holocaust never happened, 9/11 was done by CIA, and that the moon landing was faked. The movie is fantastic. Low budget, but shot professionally, with a pretty good script. I enjoyed it from beginning to end.
  • 5 stars I have a informed appreciation for the efforts of truth and reconciliation and understand the need for First Nation people to tell their story. Their voices once silenced have awakened. It is now time for the rest of Canada to listen and hear. This movie was powerful and I consider it as sacred that First Nation People permitted us into their shared vulnerability. This was not just a movie but a testament of courage and strength in the face of cruelty and injustice
  • 4 stars Heart-wrenching! I had no idea that this was our Canadian history. I'm shocked and baffled at my own ignorance. I don't even know any First Nations people because of my own misconceptions and prejudice. :(
  • 5 stars The world shall see this movie. This is one story that is too hard to shake. Bring a friend oh and be prepared for one powerful movie! Stop the stigmatism.
