Amid the clash of European and Native American cultures following the founding of Jamestown, Virginia, in 1607, the legendary romance of an English explorer, Captain John Smith (international superstar Colin Farrell - Alexander), and a beautiful Indian princess, Pocahontas (Q'orianka Kilcher), is transformed into a sweeping exploration of love, loss and discovery, both a celebration and an elegy for the America that was . . . and the America that was yet to come. The forbidden love of the passionate, noble young native and the ambitious soldier of fortune puts the pair at odds with their undeniable obligations to their own people and the inescapable demands of the human heart in the historical adventure epic The New World.
