Far and Away

Tom Cruise stars as a young and poor Irishman in the 1890's who travels to the US with a rich girl, played by Nicole Kidman. The moment they arrive, Kidman promptly has her entire fortune (in silver spoons) stolen from her and thus, they are forced to earn their living the hard way. Cruise finds his talent in prize fighting, raising money to fulfill Kidman's dream; to move to Oklahoma and start a farm. The poor boy and the rich girl hate each other at first, and it's only natural (in movieland) that these two fall in love. Far and Away does not grow dull, the performances are stunningly great and the sets are very realistic. The plot is excellent and the direction is likewise. A worthwhile film to rent!
