Lieutenant James J. Dunbar - Dances with Wolves
Kevin Costner has treated us to some of the last great Western epics. But as Lt. James J. Dunbar, he dispels the old cowboy myth in the act of writing a new one. Dunbar isn't a proud outlaw or a high-horsed lawdog, but a sentimental war vet with his own code of honor, deep and inviolate. He wants to see The Frontier before it's gone, and though he finds himself a traitor in exile with the Sioux nation by the end of his story, it's in service to something bigger than the Union's Army: the Union's conscience. Rather than give in to the tyrannical erasure of America's bloodiest chapter, he becomes one of its last avowed witnesses.
