One of my favorite films that few people have heard of is this achingly beautiful story about a man who studies wolves in the arctic. The themes are complex, the actors are brilliant, and the film is unique in its depiction of man and nature. ​

While this movie is based on the book that is based on a true story by Farley Mowat, how true is that true story? How do you grade a movie when the true story it is based on is less than truthful? Who determines what a natural resource is? Why don't John like this movie and why do he and Dawn have an aversion to nature?
