When I read in the Orange County Register that "The Indian" was to be featured at the Newport Beach Film Festival, I cleared my schedule and spread the news! I was fortunate enough to view this outstanding movie at the LA Film Featival and it was so powerful and moving that I wanted to see it again. I wasn't surprised to find a full theater. This movie is a thought provoking, heart warming look into the hearts of broken people. The story is so beautifully told. It was wonderful seeing a movie that wasn't full of fowl language and sexual innuendo. This movie should be seen by the masses. Congratulations to James Gorrie and his group of talented actors. This is a 10+
