Far and Away 
Pimps and Knuckle Bashers in Boston
2.5/4 stars

Far and Away is as full of Irish cliches as Tom Cruise is full of himself, and, worse, it does as much as it can to show, first, immigrants choking on the American Dream, and then pulling themselves up through pure grit, sex and violence. These would all be very fine things, very cinematic things, very American things, but Ron Howard puffs a silvery romantic aura around even the most squalid whorehouses. This is PG history, folks, fit for the consumption of pampered, whiny girls who dislike the shit and ugliness of real people fucking historically. I loved every minute of it.
