Far and Away (1992)



Reviews and Comments

Tom Cruise and Nicole Kidman team up for Ron Howard's compelling adventure drama about two unhappy Irish journeying to America to start a new life. He's a lowly member of the working class; she's the daughter of his wealthy, oppressive landlord. Needless to say, the sparks fly. Howard creates a vividly realized America, brutal but colorful, and uses it as a setting for an exciting, involving story.
