1994 Certificate: pg


Patuxet Indian Squanto (Adam Beach) is grabbed from his New England home by 17th century English settlers and sent back to Britain by boat. His chief tormentor is the hissable Sir George (Michael Gambon) but he encounters a different calibre of white man when he escapes (after a particularly vicious bear fight) and finds his way to monastery and Mandy Patinkin's sympathetic monk. He picks up the language and introduces the the holy men to moccasins and popcorn. Historically dubious but eminently enjoyable adventure yarn.
