Far and Away ()

directed by
featuring Tom Cruise, Nicole Kidman, Thomas Gibson, Robert Prosky, Barbara Babcock

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 Hide synopsis

A wonderful historical piece that is both entertaining and informative. Beautifully filmed and directed by Ron Howard, this epic feature is a movie the entire family would enjoy. The Oklahoma land race scene (gun shot start) is one of the most amazing moments of filming history I have ever witnessed.
