About the Movie

Tom Cruise and Nicole Kidman star in this critically-acclaimed romantic adventure from director Ron Howard. This breathtaking epic opens on the west coast of Ireland, 1892. Joseph Donelly (Cruise), a poor tenant farmer, is determined to bring justice to an oppressive landlord. Instead, he finds himself accompanying the landlord's daughter, Shannon (Kidman), to America in a quest for land. Arriving in Boston, Joseph finds a place for them to live while proving a natural at bare-fisted boxing. But his triumph is short-lived as he and Shannon are thrown out into the bitter cold. Joseph sets off for work on the railroad, until a passing wagon train reminds him of his original goal to possess his own land. Preparing to stake his claim in the new territory, he runs into Shannon who is unhappily reunited with her former fiance. In the excitement of the Oklahoma land rush, they realize their dreams of land and life together in this satisfying grand-scale adventure that WNCN Radio calls "Ron Howard's best film - a wondrous epic!"

this was an ok movie for me. I did like the romance a lot. The journey and the plot of the movie was good.


This is one of the best movies I have ever seen. Tom Cruise even sounds like a real Irish Man! The acting and quality of the movie is the best! It was made in the 90s and it has better quality than some of the movies I have seen today. I highley recommend it for anybody. It has fighting and a love story that will send your heart flying! I laughed, I cried, and I cheered for Far and Away!
