Product Description
"Far And Away" is an adventure, drama, romance film directed by Ron Howard, starring Tom Cruise and Nicole Kidman. Cruise and Kidman play Irish immigrants searching for wealth in the new country.The film shows the story of the immigrants coming to America and also shows the 'class' distinctions that were held over from the old country. Joseph is clearly 'lower class' and Shannon is 'upper class.' The struggles of the newly arrived Joseph and Shannon are compounded by their budding love and various attempts to make money so they can go West for the Land Run of 1893. Any story of Irish immigrants wouldn't be complete without barehanded boxing, corrupt officials, theft and working the railroad, all of which Joseph does to get West. Viewers get the great importance of land ownership to immigrants, but also the immense struggles they encounter along the way. Youthful viewers can be encouraged to discuss some of the immigrant/illegals issues prevalent today with those presented in the film.
