    Though it could have used tome editing, this was a solid effort for Ron Howard and Tom and Nicole. The thill of the ending makes up for some parts that dragged a little. This movie is still remembered and will continue to be remembered.

  1. There is a richness to Far and Away that seems wasted on its simple love story straight out of "It Happened One Night."
  2. Sometimes it's hard to tell what's mere overreaching and what's nostalgia for Hollywood's former grandiloquence.

    Far and Away is a movie that joins astonishing visual splendor with a story so simple-minded it seems intended for adolescents.
