Editorial Reviews

From the Pulitzer Prize-winning author of The Hours comes a story that chronicles a dozen years in the lives of two best friends. The film charts a journey of trials, triumphs, loves and losses. Now the question is: can they navigate the unusual triangle they've created and hold their friendship together?

Customer Reviews

I enjoyed the book greatly and never dreamed I would like the movie just as much.
Book Freak
It is sorrowful to see how the woman and mother of the child accepts without actually saying so to move away with the child to let the two men free to live there love.
Jacques COULARDEAU
Their emotions the physical as well psychological play a very important role in the development of their characters throughout the film.

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 ›

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.

Something happened to me yesterday. Something I was surprised to experience for the second time in recent years. I saw this film, a film I had heard , but never really new the subject of. I was sitting there, in my living room, absorbed by the intense truth of A Home At The End Of The World.

What pulled me in was not the plot or the gimmics used to draw the viewer in, this is not the case of this film, but the complexity, the humanity and the love that came out, that transcended the screen and reached my soul, my heart so profoundly that this morning I found myself walking around in my appartment still feeling the emotions, the attachment, the pain, the love and the lives of the three people I came to know.

The story, as most of you probably know by now, centers around three people (from the sixties through the eighties) and the relationship they form together, the complexity of their souls and their need for the other two. And that's what's so poignant here : their need, especially Bobby's need to feel that everyone around him is happy and well. Each one of these three need something from the other. It can be Bobby's fear of being alone, Clare's need for some sort of stability or Jonathan's need of being the most important person in someone's life.

So when the end of this film comes and Bobby, Jonathan and Clare have all faced life changing obstacles, accidents, and quiet moments, a decision needs to be make by Bobby. A decision that is both easy and hurtful for him and Clare because she has to make her own decision and does not know the reason behind his response.
