An average movie

I already saw this movie but, since it was ages ago, I thought I might as well check it out again. Well, I was actually surprised by how little I actually remembered the damned thing which is usually not really a good sign. Anyway, I have to admit that I always had some mixed feelings regarding this movie. Indeed, even though it started out as a rather ambitious project (Isnโ€™t it always the case... read more

A young man (Cruise) leaves Ireland with his landlord's daughter (Kidman) after some trouble with her father, and they dream of owning land at the big giveaway in Oklahoma ca. 1893. 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.

"FORMAT: 70mm CONDITION: โ˜…โ˜…โ˜…โ˜…โ˜… NOTES: Original release print kept locked away in the BFIโ€™s archive since 1992, it looks absolutely breathtaking, and I can even understand why the only 70mm they chose to show was a major motion picture from the master of baffling choices. The projectionist switched over to the third reel four seconds late so we were treated to an end reel, and the sound of chatter rewinding and a beep was music to my ears. Sadly, there were a few instances in which the"

"First viewing - Apr. 24th I thought this was leaving Starz this month, so I wanted to catch it before it did...and now it looks like it may not be. Ah well. Once I got past the absurdity of Tom Cruise playing an Irishman, I really enjoyed the film. The story is very well-told, the cast is strong all around, and it got me emotionally invested. I doubt I would have appreciated it back when it came out, so I'm glad I didn't see it before now. It's not a film I'd need to watch twice, but I wouldn't"
