Dances With Wolves (1990)
A very good film about the vanishing West and Native American life (so good it’s hard to believe that Kevin Costner produced and directed it; his first one too). Costner received his only Academy Award nominations to-date for this film losing only the Best Actor award (to Jeremy Irons Reversal of Fortune (1990) the only time he’s ever been nominated as well). The film won five other Oscars including Screenplay Writing; Graham Greene and Mary McDonnell received nominations for their Supporting roles. #75 on AFI’s 100 Greatest Movies list. #59 on AFI’s 100 Most Inspiring Movies list.
Added to the National Film Registry in 2007.
