Squanto: A Warrior's Tale

Genre: Historical; Starring: Adam Beach, Mandy Patinkin; Director: Xavier Koller; MPAA Rating: PG

Squanto (Adam Beach) is a brave young Native American who gets captured by British explorers and hauled off to England. Before his tale is over, he will fight a bear in a Spartacus-style arena, find refuge with a motley order of monks, and hop a ship back home, where he’ll make peace between his people and Pilgrim settlers. A family film in the Disney tradition, Squanto: A Warrior’s Tale admirably espouses brotherhood among ”tribes.” Yet it takes such a roundabout route to its improbably harmonious ending that group ennui will set in long before grown-up disbelief.
