Director: Paul Greengrass.

We all have a soft corner for Tom Hanks; his films may not all be huge grossers but they do leave you with a warm fuzzy feeling of hope amidst despair. This one places Hanks in 1870, in the midst of the American Wild West, dealing with the aftermath of the Civil War – the unrest and the uncertainty surrounding Whites, Blacks and Red Indians, all playing a part in the plot.

As Captain Kidd, a Civil War veteran, he takes on the arduous task of delivering a girl to her family. She had been kidnapped by the Kiowa people as an infant but as her adoptive family gets killed, she must now reluctantly return – unsure of her new home and family.
