That's the point. She's iron-willed but ultimately largely responsible for her own problems, and ends the movie deservedly alone.
As I feared, itís an unrepentantly racist movie, too Ė and I donít just mean the characters. No, the opening title crawl makes the movieís point of view quite clear.
It's considerably less racist than the novel, believe it or not.
