At the age 19, a young Navajo by the name of Jean Whitehorse was given a one-way bus ticket to Oakland, Calif., during the late 1960s. She traveled by Greyhound, her first time on a bus, to Los Angeles, into San Francisco and across the bridge to Oakland, where she arrived at 2 am.

Under a relocation program headed by the Bureau of Indian Affairs, she was told to travel there to receive job training. Little did she know that she was going to be a part of a major historical event that would change the lives of many Native Americans.

Running Time: 125 min.

Most people remember the 2010 Chilean calamity that left miners stranded miles beneath the ground.  So it comes a bit of a surprise to see a dramatic recreation of events so soon afterward. The 33 does its best to do justice to its working class heroes, but doesn’t delve deeply enough beneath the surface and ultimately comes up a little short.

As in many disaster movies, the plot introduces the miners all too quickly; in this case, at a social function and the following morning as they start their day and head out for work. We get all too brief snippets of these people and don’t learn any more than the basics. There’s family...
