Can't help but like it!,
By A Customer
This review is from: Far And Away [DVD]  (DVD)
I know this is not a good film, but I do love it! It's romantic, charming (even the sometimes dodgy Cruise Irish accent) and it looks very good. The plot is simple- a rich, stuck-up daughter of an Irish landlord, and a young farm worker run off together to seek their fortune in America. Their dream is to enter the Oklahoma landrush and find their own pieces of land, but things aren't what they expected when they reach America. Kidman and Cruise have a real screen chemistry (not surprising really I suppose), and they give good performances. It is overly sentimental and slushy, but what's wrong with that from time to time? Nothing, so watch it, and have a sweeping, romantic feast.
