Overview

Native American history got the Disney treatment in this biography aimed at younger audiences. Adam Beach stars as Squanto, an Eastern Massachusetts native of the 17th century, who befriends the English settlers who are starting to colonize the region. Naively trusting his new friends, Squanto and his best friend Epenow (Eric Schweig) offer to help some sailors load a vessel that's departing for England. The two Indians are shanghaied and taken across the ocean to serve as sideshow attractions for the greedy owner (Michael Gambon) of the shipping line. Squanto quickly escapes and finds refuge in a nearby cloister, where he is protected by the kindly monks, in particular Brother Daniel (Mandy Patinkin), who teaches Squanto to speak English. Squanto learns of a ship carrying more settlers to the New World, so he stows away and returns to his homeland, where he finds that his village has been wiped out by disease brought by the colonists. Nevertheless, Squanto brokers a peace deal between his hostile brothers and the settlers, and they celebrate the first Thanksgiving together. Beach went on to star in the Native American drama Smoke Signals (1998).

All in all it was a pretty good movie. A little scrubbed clean as expected from Disney. Eric and Adam , what can I say, been a long time since Squanto was made and the guys have made some awesome movies since. Squanto is a must for any Adam and Eric collection and great for the kiddies to see.

this was an interesting movie and was a little sad. but everyone did a good job especially adam beach in the title role. this is about squanto and his adventures after being captured and escaped and trying to make peace with two very different sides of people.

Interesting treatment of the old fable of Squanto. Well photographed and for the most part a plausible portrayal of the prevailing customs and atttudes of that period. A bit too mauldlin in some scenes but non the less an overall enjoyable viewing experience. It would be a neat addition to a film library for parents with children in the early school years.

The colors are subeubd but Beautiful. An earhty feel Lot's of Browns greens and some red It's not like other Disney films there films usualy are more brighter. this movie looks more mature then other disney movies. his devotion to he wife Nakooma and his yearing for her is so beyond words. Adam Beach is so sexy in this movie. I Love his body! I love this movie
