Cast & Crew
As a director, Costner is alive to the sweep of the country and the expansive spirit of the western-movie tradition.
In his directorial debut, Kevin Costner brings a rare degree of grace and feeling to this elegiac tale.
It's a rousing adventure, a touching romance, and a stirring drama.
A simple story, magnificently told.
Recalls the sweep as well as the intimacy of a David Lean epic.
Costner (with Michael Blake's screenplay) creates a vision so childlike, so willfully romantic, it's hard to put up a fight.
A stunning combination of all-American boyishness and sweeping grandeur.
