Teenager Angus McCormick (Jesse Bradford) hits it off with a stray Labrador dog, whom he names Yellow. Although his parents are not initially keen to take on another mouth to feed, this all changes when Angus and his father John (Bruce Davison) go on a boat trip exploring the beautiful coastline of British Columbia. The boat capsizes during a bad storm and, while Angus father is picked up by rescuers, the boy and dog are washed ashore and must survive together in the uncharted forests. Although resourceful and trained by his father to survive in the wilderness, Angus has to survive battling the elements, the terrain and wild animals in his efforts to get them both safely home. Meanwhile his parents wait fretfully for any news of their son from the rescue teams scouring the area

Taking a few days off from school to accompany his dad, John (Bruce Davison), on a supply run seems like a dream come true. But when they encounter a fierce storm, the boat they are in capsizes. John is quickly rescued, but the search and rescue teams can't find any trace of Angus or Yellow.
The two have survives and are trying to find their way back to civilization. Will they be able to survive and be reunited with their family?
This movie is fairly standard and innocuous family fare. It is a little slow at times, especially in the beginning while things are set up. It is fairly predictable. But it is entertaining. Kids will enjoy it more than their parents. My biggest complaint was actually the short scenes. Many things are introduced and resolved too quickly, never giving any plot point time to be fully developed. At the same time, I did eventually get caught up in the emotions and found the ending satisfying.
The film could have been much better but does grow on you. Don't rush out to see it, but there's no reason to avoid it either.
But if you have ever lost a dog, or have the imagination to understand that condition, you should give this a chance.
'Far from Home' combines the awesome beauty of the Pacific northwest coast, a dog, a happy ordinary family as well as rescue aircraft and helicopters, so there's something for everyone.
Let's be frank, this is not Oscar material, the human actors are sound rather than superb, but 'Yellow' (the dog), plays himself with great authenticity and naturalism.
The story is contrived, no sailor who knows the Pacific coast would set sail without checking the local met. forecast first, but this provides the writers with the opportunity for a storm to separate Dad from son and his dog.
Everyone reacts with proper stoicism and the human characters are soon re-united but 'Yellow' cannot be picked-up by the helicopter so we are all set for much anxiety as the labrador must now fend for himself in the vast temperate Cedar forest of the Canadian coastal wilderness.
The ending is surprisingly touching and actually quite numinous. If you own tear ducts, prepare to use them.
Up there with any of the great 'dog films' and something for all the family.
The setting looks really nice to.
And if you like dogs then you should like this dvd to.
