Epic-style romance about a couple of Irish immigrant farmers trying to make it in America during the 19th century. The old-fashioned style of filmmaking might have come off better had the film been made in the 1940's or 1950's, unfortunately Ron Howard's film is boring, far too long and certainly not helped by the atrocious 'Oi-rish' accents of the two main stars, Tom Cruise & Nicole Kidman.
