The New World

A friend lent this to me recently, and wondered if I'd like it. Her husband was a fan, but she wasn't.

Anyway, it's about Pocahontas and her life (although I don't recall the movie actually saying the name Pocahontas at all). I'll come right out and say that I prefer the Disney portrayal (although the Disney version obviously has it's inaccuracies). It was interesting, and I had forgotten that Pocahontas didn't end up with John Smith, but it was much too long and slow. Quite a bit of sadness too (I won't spell it all out and spoil the whole thing).
