    Hostiles (2017)

    Here is an excellent movie. Set in 1892, a retiring Army Captain is ordered to escort a Cheyenne chief and his family through dangerous territory so that he can die in his homeland in Wyoming, or maybe it was Montana, I don't remember.

    This was not a duty that he was pleased with because he had spent his career fighting Indians and hated them with a passion. But, under threat of court-martial, which would eliminate his pension, he agrees to do it.

    The movie is more about human issues of hate and acceptance than it is a shoot-em-up, although it is that too. Only three people survive.

    I'm sure it's elsewhere as well, but I watched it on Netflix.

    IMDB: Hostiles

    I follow Christian Bale. I'll check it out.

    I thought you gave up on Netflix, @Ken Anderson.

    They don't make a lot of Westerns anymore but most of the ones they make are very good, as compared to when nearly every new movie was either a Western or a war movie, but most of them were crap. I like that it's not all about the shooting.

    I agree - that's why we liked 'Silent Night' (remember that one) a war film with a difference and just happened to be a true story

    I watched Hostiles last night. I liked it not just because I like Christian Bale but it has a good storyline. @Ken Anderson the chief's homeland was Montana.
