    Colin Farrell is astonishing in the movie.
  2. At its best, A Home at the End of the World has great emotional strength. But it's not the towering achievement it might have been if Cunningham had stayed truer to his original inspiration.
  3. 100
    Charged by a passion for life, A Home at the End of the World is a major achievement.

    A very touching and moving film. Colin Farrell did an outstanding job; his character, though not unflawed, saw the best in people. There was an innocence about him. My favorite seen is when Colin's character, Bobby, consoles Jonathan, played by Dallas Roberts, about his "bruise" (scene 21 on disc). Very believable; they have a great connection which started at a young age that some others could only wish they have. Full Review »
