To be honest, it has been a while since I have seen this movie and maybe I should re-watch it at some point. Personally, I always had some mixed feelings towards this feature. Indeed, even though it started out as a rather ambitious project (Isn’t it always the case when Tom Cruise is involved?), it turned out to be after all a rather weak effort for all the people involved.

When they get to the new land, they find jobs and begin saving money. The man becomes a local barehands boxer, and rides in glory until he is beaten, then his employers steal all the couple's money and they must fight off starvation in the winter, and try to keep their dream of owning land alive. Meanwhile, the woman's parents find out where she has gone and have come to America to find her and take her back.

" Tom Cruise playing an Irish man feel like one of film history's biggest mistakes but is only the tip of the iceberg for a film that is full of historic inaccuracies. Better is Nicole Kidman who seem perfect for the project. Gorgeous nature photography and the scope of the film as it moves itself from Ireland, New York and the Old West make it feel epic even if it is a flawed film. "

Indeed, even though it started out as a rather ambitious project (Isn’t it always the case when Tom Cruise is involved?), it turned out to be after all a rather weak effort for all the people involved. Still, somehow, I can’t really discard the whole thing. Back in those days, 20 years ago, things were different in the movie business, Tom Cruise was definitely the biggest movie star in the world, whereas Nicole Kidman was merely known as Mrs. Cruise at the time and nobody would have expected her to become eventually an Oscar winner and one of the most respected actress at work nowadays.
