Jessica Chastain plays Catherine Weldon, a widowed artist who travels from New York to North Dakota in the 1880s to paint a portrait of Chief Sitting Bull (Michael Greyeyes). While there, she becomes part of the movement to help the Lakota maintain the rights for their land (Sam Rockwell is one of the hostile Army officers). Exposing these injustices never gains much dramatic traction and her relationship with the Chief has potential, but also fails to fully develop. Overall, this is an interesting historical footnote with strong performances, but not a very compelling movie.
