The New World

Saw The New World this evening with some of the usual suspects. As Sarah had chosen the film, I went in with no preconceptions, only knowing it was a differing (and allegedly more accurate) story of Pocahontas to the Disney offering (which I’ve never seen anyway). I was very pleasantly surprised to see a film spend time setting the scene, developing its characters and telling the story at a pace which allowed you to appreciate what was going on. The actual story itself is fairly simple to explain, but the film concentrated on the character of Pocahontas, in her various experiences, the situation the settlers were in and the sheer natural beauty of this new world. I thought it was a good film and worth seeing – some of my fellow viewers thought otherwise. Probably good if you’re an adult. 🙂
