"Misunderstood cultures" in movie

Chris Martini’s “The Stone Child":  A Lakota-Mormon American TaleIt may be universal, but in the upcoming Chris Martini film, The Stone Child, the boy and his parents aren’t the usual plastic suburban cut-outs. This time, the family is Mormon and Lakota.

And that’s where it gets interesting....You see, Martini isn’t Mormon or Lakota himself, but that didn’t prevent him from writing a script about two of the most misunderstood cultures in the United States.

Writerfella here --
Not having seen this film, writerfella hopes the makers did their homework, because it sounds an awful lot like the 1984 made-for-TV film, THE STONE BOY, with Robert Duvall, Glenn Close, and Wilford Brimley. That would be tragic, if they did not...
