Woman Walks Ahead 123 Full Movie Plot & Release Dates.
Screenwriter Steven Knight and director Susanna White have here created juicy roles for Jessica Chastain and the charismatic Canadian actor Michael Greyeyes. It is an intriguing story from real life: with brutal moments, underpinned by a sturdily liberal and humanist balance in its portrayal of an important and little-known encounter between a white woman and a Native American. These were the artist-activist Catherine Weldon and the Sioux leader Sitting Bull, whom Weldon set out to paint while living with him and the Sioux tribe — to the horrified disgust of the military and civilian pioneers who suspected a subversive political intent.
In truth, this movie appears to have softened and straightened out the historical record a little, making Weldon a widow when the facts were more complicated, and turning its heroine into someone a little more naïve politically than appears actually to have been the case. The film depicts her as a slightly memsahib-ish idealist who journeyed out to the dangerous territories with her trunk full of canvas and brushes, and who became a partisan for the Native Americans only after putting into practice her quixotic and romantic plan of painting Sitting Bull’s portrait. In real life, her political ideals seem to have been in existence at the same time as her artistic ambitions. But however fictionalised, the film does show that art is political: painting Sitting Bull’s portrait is a public act of sympathy with unavoidable political consequences.
Jessica Chastain’s Weldon is tough and yet naïve, someone who appears initially baffled and affronted by the hostility her ambitions arouse among her fellow whites. Sam Rockwell plays a local military man who is sneeringly contemptuous of her and who is incidentally engaged in a plan to starve the Native Americans into submission, reducing the rations available to those on the Reservation in return for legally signing away a good deal of their land rights.
