This is a sentimental but thoughtful drama about a part Native American orphan who is raised by his grandparents in the mountains of Tennessee. It's a family film that looks at "traditional" family values through a filter of an alternative life steeped in nature and tribal lore. Joseph Ashton impresses as the youngster whose happiness is threatened by the modern world and its rules. James Cromwell has a quiet strength as Grandpa, and the movie is beautifully shot. Educational, in the sort of way that most modern family films are not.

What our educators say

"Some of them saw a clip from Wakolda (The German Doctor) on TV recently and really wanted to watch it. So I thought I’d take a chance, not expecting them to watch the whole film but the majority were absolutely gripped. "
