This was my first time seeing this movie, along with Schindler's List, probably the biggest movie I hadn't seen up to this point.
I felt empathy with many of the characters throughout and the film took me on an emotional journey as well as a visual one.

I could easily see that given the same place, time and circumstances that I too would have taken a similar path...and that makes Dances With Wolves a personal film, as I can 'live' history for the duration of the film.
