Rating:
PG-13
Grey Owl is a grasping film following Pony, (Annie Galipeau) an Iroquois woman, learns about the traditions of her culture that have vanished through time. With the aid of Archie Grey Owl (Pierce Brosnan) Pony experiences how her ancestors trapped animals, realizing along the way how plentiful nature is through living in a self-sustaining lifestyle, but how inhumane and cruel trapping animals can be. A rapid change of pace occurs as Pony and Archie wed, and begin a lecture tour of England where beaver fur is held as a luxury. The Canadian Native American duo act as conservationists, preaching to the public the bounty of nature, expressing how the slaughtering of animals harms its beauty. As fur trade was a booming industry in the 1930s, it is no surprise the two find themselves receiving much negativity from the rich; Grey Owl is an inspiring film sure to keep its viewers enthralled.
