Here's another DVD I'll definitely be buying when it comes out later this year. "A Home at the end of the World" is one of the most frustrating, yet also one of the most rewarding, films I've seen in a while. Fright wigs aside, it does a masterful job of evoking the late `60s in America. People have a habit of dying around 14-year-old Bobby Morrow: first his brother (in the film's most visually arresting scene), then his mother, and then his father. This sets up a situation wherein Bobby must move in with the family of his best friend from school, Jonathan Glover. When the two boys sleep together, even before Bobby moves in permanently, Jonathan puts the moves on him, and, wondrously, Bobby gets involved. The two are inseparable until Jonathan's mother (played by the luminous Sissy Spacek) discovers them in a VW together and Jonathan pulls away from Bobby. Jonathan ultimately moves to New York, but Bobby stays behind with the Glovers, until, eight years later, daddy Glover decides that it's time Bobby move out on his own. Bobby follows Jonathan to New York, only to be rejected once again by his childhood friend, at which point he turns to Jonathan's roommate, the free-spirited Clare, for solace. What follows is fairly predictable if you've seen any movies about gay relationships in the late seventies and early eighties, but the part that rings true is the self-destructive relationship between the male leads. Jonathan wants no one but Bobby, but can't appreciate that he already has him. Bobby wants Jonathan, but is willing to "settle" for a relationship with Clare, especially when it comes with the promise of a family and a child. Jonathan throws himself into a promiscuous lifestyle and pays the price all movie homosexuals must pay for sleeping around. But Bobby is still there.Read more ›

Format: DVD
The search for family and home are universal themes to which everyone can relate. What's refreshing about "A Home at the End of the World" is that it explores these issues in a decidedly nontraditional way, with quirky characters that form bonds much different from the conventional suburban household, but no less loving.

Written and adapted by the author of "The Hours," Michael Cunningham, "World" centers on a romantic triangle between Bobby Morrow (Colin Farrell), his childhood friend Jonathan Glover (Dallas Roberts), and a free-spirited older woman named Clare (Robin Wright Penn).

The film could have gotten caught up in its storyline, but chooses instead to focus on the complexity of the relationships between the characters. That's why it works. The characters, each played with sincerity and depth of conviction, are so compelling that the film becomes like a character study in friendship, family and love. All of the actors in the film turn in exquisite performances. But, it's Farrell's astonishing portrayal of Bobby that stands out.

Similar to Charlise Theron's portrayal in "Monster," though not as risky, Farrell breaks free from his stereotypical roles for this film. Nearly unrecognizable as the soft-spoken Bobby, Farrell proves he has more to offer audiences than his usual two-dimensional portrayals in films such as "Phone Booth" and "S.W.A.T." In fact, this film is all about breaking stereotypes. That is its appeal. In a way, the film uniqueness makes its common themes stand out more because it proves that family, just like people, comes in all shapes and sizes.

The DVD extras include the trailer and a segment called The Journey Home, which includes interviews with the director and the actors. Farrell is surprisingly absent from the segment, but the others talk candidly about their love for the characters and the deep emotions that are expressed through the work.

Made before Brokeback, this film also depicts complicated feelings, passions, and relationships, which in this case happens to be between two men and a woman. The story never becomes too sappy or predictable. At first, I was disappointed in the ending, but in retrospect a melodramatic ending would have ruined the delicate, simple story line. A FANTASTIC performance by Colin Farrel, and very good portrayals by Robin Penn Wright, and Sissy Spacek. I would have given it 4.5 out of 5, if possible (I rarely give a 5!) I can't wait to go back now and read the novel.

I caught the ending of this movie on cable one night, and I was so moved by it that I had to go out and buy the DVD. After watching it all the way through, I have to say that this is one of the best movies that I have ever watched. The characters in this movie are both funny and heartbreaking.......you will find yourself laughing and crying during this movie. All of the actors were great in their roles, and Duncan Sheik's music will tug at your heartstrings too. This is a movie about love, pure and simple. You will be glad that you added this movie to your collection. Truly a masterpiece. I could watch it over and over.

If you want to see how sweet and vulnerable, and what a fine actor, Colin Farrell really can be, just watch the scene where he confesses he's "never done this before" to Clare. The expressions on his face and in his eyes will make you fall in love with him. Robin Wright Penn's performance in that scene is wonderful as well.
