In a future where the polar ice-caps have melted and Earth is almost entirely submerged, a mutated mariner fights starvation and outlaw "smokers," and reluctantly helps a woman and a young girl try to find dry land.
Ted Kramer's wife leaves her husband, allowing for a lost bond to be rediscovered between Ted and his son, Billy. But a heated custody battle ensues over the divorced couple's son, deepening the wounds left by the separation.
Lt. John Dunbar is dubbed a hero after he accidentally leads Union troops to a victory during the Civil War. He requests a position on the western frontier, but finds it deserted. He soon finds out he is not alone, but meets a wolf he dubs "Two-socks" and a curious Indian tribe. Dunbar quickly makes friends with the tribe, and discovers a white woman who was raised by the Indians. He gradually earns the respect of these native people, and sheds his white-man's ways.

It's hard for me to believe this movie is not in the top 250 on IMBD all
time list. Without question my favorite movie. We live in a strange world
when Pulp Fiction ranks #18, and Dances with Wolves just misses the top
Maybe people thought the movie was too long. I thought it was too short if
anything. I wish they would have gone on forever. What an incredible
The way Costner continued to get closer and closer to the Indians way
