Summary
The screen adaptation of Guy Vanderhaeghe's award-winning novel, The Englishman's Boy is an unforgettable tale of deceit, manipulation, guilt and violence set against the dual backdrops of an unforgiving 1873 North American frontier and the allure of 1920s Hollywood. The film uncovers the startling violence behind the settling of the West and delves into one of the most brutal events in Canadian history - the Cypress Hills Massacre. It also explores early Hollywood's fixation on stories of cowboys and Indians, popular and highly skewed portrayals that sacrificed truth for romance
