Synopsis


Far and Away
In this epic Ron Howard film, Joseph Donelly (Tom Cruise) is an impoverished 19th-century Irish tenant farmer who has recently lost both his father and his home to the agents of his unscrupulous landlord. On a mission to avenge his family's injustice at the hands of the ruthless land baron Joseph meets the landlord's daughter and the two run off to America together where the girl expects to claim a piece of land for herself in the Oklahoma Land Rush. After she is robbed on the boat that carries them to America, they arrive with nary a penny and struggle just to keep their heads above water in the slums of Boston. After a series of serious set-backs they do eventually work their way out West, where Joseph must fight to realize his dream and claim a piece of the American Dream for himself -- and where they finally acknowledge their love for each other. Shot in wide-screen Panavision, the movie was filmed on-location in Ireland and Montana. ~ Iotis Erlewine, Rovi

    I watched this movie because I thought it looked very interesting, and I really love Nichole Kidman movies. I am not however, a fan of Tom Cruise, but it looked like it had a really great story. I liked the romance between the actor and actress, but the ending was weak. I really wanted them to go into it a little more, and I thought it was a bit cheesy. Well, the whole movie was somewhat cheesy, but I hoped that at least they would have expanded on their lives after they got their land. I was pretty into it the whole movie, and then they lost me at the end. Not something I would go out of my way to watch again.

    Better than Average

    I found 'Far and Away' to be a better than average movie. It just gets a little long at times, and probably could have been tightened some. Still, worth the buy for those who enjoyed it. Widescreen.
