My Neighbor Totoro
Normally I wouldn't mention something this trivial, but I was surprised to see two Native actors--Kimberly Guerrero and Zahn McClarnon--in the credits. Wikipedia says David Midthunder also was in the cast. They aren't in the IMDB listing for Disney's English-language version, so they probably had only a couple lines each.
Out of a few dozen speaking roles, how did three of them end up with Natives? Let's see...Guerrero and Midthunder were in Dreamkeeper and Hidalgo together. McClarnon and Midthunder were in Into the West together. A year or two after that, they were all doing the English version of My Neighbor Totoro. There must be some connection there.
Anyway, My Neighbor Totoro is a charming film. A nice depiction of life in the countryside, and possibly the best screen depiction of little girls ever. Rob's rating: 8.0 of 10.
