True Heart is a 1997 American adventure film, starring Kirsten Dunst as Bonnie and Zachery Ty Bryan as Sam.

It tells the story of a brother and sister who survive a plane crash that strands them in the Canadian wilderness. They are rescued by a Native-American named Khonanesta (August Schellenberg) who claims there are "bad people" in the forest and tells them they must get away. He leads them on a trip through the wilderness away from poachers to find their parents.

In an astronomical error the Native-American draws a star map with the end stars of the handle of the Big Dipper (he calls it the Big Bear) pointing to the North Star at the end of the handle of the Little Dipper (he calls it the Little Bear). In fact the stars on the far side of the bowl of the Big Dipper are the pointers to the North Star.

DVD & Movie Guide gave the movie three-and-a-half stars, saying that it was "perfect for family viewing".[1]
