#123movies #fmovies #putlocker #gomovies #solarmovie #soap2day Watch Full Movie Online Free – Focused on the troublesome past of Residential Schools in the 60’s, we see the Indigenous Canadian and their struggles before, during, and after the fact. Specifically following the story of young Saul Indian Horse, and his journey throughout every stereotypical and racist obstacle imaginable. Seemingly on his way to stardom as a talented hockey player, backed by the support of his dream and fellow indigenous teammates belief, the battles continue to develop, and overtime turns him towards the very stereotypes he so desperately fought to overcome. A fair warning that while sport themed, this movie is about much more, and as a warning is exceptionally sad and distressing. Regardless of being well educated in the treatment of Indigenous people back then or not, it’s certainly not comfortable to see the portrayal of what life might have been like in the residential schools, and even further what life was like on the road in our own country of Canada during those times. Like climbing a mountain, for every steep incline you think the movie is finally on the up and up, until a crashing stagnant detail hits, and the battle becomes that much more difficult for young Saul. He’s so close to establishing the dream, the great feat, but against all odds, who could imagine facing this battle on one’s own. All things considered, the movie is certainly not your run of the mill sports movie that progresses towards a…well you should watch for yourself and see.
Plot: Saul is a great native hockey player who overcomes racism in the 1970s then ultimately becomes tempted by alcoholism.

The uncomfortable truth
It is a tough and painful movie to watch, so you should. For those who know something about Canadian History, the residential schools is one of those topics some prefer to evade. But you can’t and very few (if any) movies have shown the reality as it was. Crude, painful, disturbing. There were a few scenes I had to turn away and pretend I did not see just because they are too strong. Midway through the movie you are led to believe there is a reason why this is happening, just to quickly realize there is not and this is just a big tragedy with no winners. Be brave, open your mind and watch this masterpiece.
This film helped me understand what really happened to kids that were taken to residential schools. I also could feel the pain that they felt, it was the first time I was able to put myself in their shoes. I think this film has a very strong message, this film should be shown in high schools across Canada, for history classes. I think the actors did a good job acting even though it was a really hard subject. It probably caused them a lot of pain. The places they chose to shoot the film and the way they edited it made a huge impact on the emotions of the film. This movie is full of sadness, but also has a lot of importance.
