Smoke Signals
1998
On a Coeur d'Alene, Idaho, reservation, nothing ever changes -- until the estranged father of Victor Joseph (Adam Beach) bites the dust in Arizona, and Victor must go collect the cremated remains. The problem is, Victor can't afford the fare. But annoying nerd Thomas Builds-the-Fire (Evan Adams) will float Victor a loan ... if Thomas can tag along. This tender tale of self-discovery is based on acclaimed author Sherman Alexie's short stories.

Scott Hardie: “It ruled.”

I've wanted to see this since enjoying Sherman Alexie's book, and it didn't disappoint. It's a gentle, practically PG-rated road-trip movie with a different perspective and literate dialogue. Gary Farmer is great playing the complicated father figure.
