I was pretty disappointed with the film version. I suppose the film version was for many people who had not read the book. On its own, the film version was okay. As with many film versions of books, Indian Horse failed to capture the details and subtleties of the book. I thought that Saul's character was not developed in the movie, especially when he was a child at residential school. His love of hockey as well as his keen intellect were not developed well. Although many characters were there, the movie failed to properly develop them or they were simply left out. The character that takes Saul home when he became a drunk was not there. I also thought the magic of Saul's time in the native league was missing. That's just my take.
