Editorial Reviews

On the other side of innocence lies fear. Drew Barrymore (Charlie's Angels, The Wedding Singer, Never Been Kissed), Anthony Rapp, (Adventures in Babysitting), Richard Masur (License to Drive) and Matt Frewer ("Max Headroom") star in this twisted suspense thriller as an innocent girl's budding sexuality lures her into a frenzied whirlwind of seduction and murder. Stranded in the desert with an empty gas tank, Charlie Cross (Frewer) and his beautiful young daughter Joleen (Barrymore) go to a nearby trailer park to escape the blistering noonday heat. It's there Joleen meets Jimmy, a strange and mysterious boy whose brazen and enticing sexuality captures her curiosity. But as a shy competitor vies for her attention, Joleen becomes embroiled in a deadly adult world where the price of sophistication is terror.

So it wasn't her best role.

This movie does several things pretty well. First, Drew Barrymore's character is really well drawn. She's sensitive, consumed by her own emotions, and, well, horny. Unlike the teenagers in so much of today's cinema, Drew's character has a total lack of attitude, she's fueled by feelings, not cliches. This is all done in a subtle way, and that makes her very likable and sympathetic. Also, the "far from home" atmosphere is created nicely. You really do feel as if you're in the last place on earth, with all these oddball characters either trying to get out or else slowly losing their sanity from the isolation and desolation. These things contrast well and give the film a really uneasy feeling. The totally naive girls put in a dangerous place - but of course she doesn't know it's dangerous. It could so easily descend into melodrama, but it doesn't because of the skillfulness with which it is crafted. The other characters are also well done - everyone has a very definite personality and they all add together to create the atmosphere - exactly what you might expect to find in such a place, but of course you've never thought about it before because who would want to?
Overall, an effective film.

Far From Home is by far one of my favorite movies with such classic lines as 'Did I scare you?' and 'Where are you going?We were playing keep-away!' The reason many people didn't like it,though,was because of the uncomfortable desert setting.But the story is full of subtle details that will require multiple viewings to catch.Sure the movie has one or two script flaws(beware the 'Have you ever...done it' scene and try to ignore some of Drew's narrations)and a poorly-placed sex scene (I'd rather see Drew swimming anyday) but,thanks to a great story and a superb cast,I think this is one of the best movies noone has ever heard of.

A very good movie, wrongly crucisfied by the critics. I was on the edge of my seat watching this film, and you could never tell what was going to happen. Drew Barrymore proved in this film she was going to be the great actress she turned out to be.

Drew is a sexually curious 15 year old stranded in some trailer park with her dad. She encounters many bizarre characters and has several eye opening experiences.Nothing too deep, but a fun low budget sleeper with some nice scares and a scene stealing performance by the awesome Susan Tyrrel as the sleazebag trailer park manager.

Drew Barrymore plays Joleen Cox,a girl who wants her dad Charlie to realize that she's "turning 14 tomorrow,not 12." This film does a great job epitomizing white trash and is a great suspense movie for anyone who can handle the scorching desert atmosphere.The movie has a few script flaws made by Drew,but they are made up for by the outstanding performances of Richard Masur as an old hippie and Anthony Rapp(before he did Dazed&Confused and RENT),namely his scenes on the microwave relay and his sweet moment with Drew on a scorching desert plane. If you get this movie for any reason at all,get it for just the fish-sticks scene with Susan Tyrrel and Andras Jones as the ultimate white trash mother and son.

This was a great movie with a great cast. When you watch it you have a feeling you know who the killer is, but your not sure enough to say anyhting till the end when you find out, this move has great suspense. Plus you get to see the gorgious Andras Jones, and Drew Barymore is a spectacular actress.

There were a few parts of the movie that could have been better but if you liked the original "Poison Ivy" then you will like this movie. Overall it was a good movie.

Wow, this was an edge of your seat guessing game. I was so interested with the plot and was suprised all the way through. It is a nail biter. Drew Barrymore is the perfect example of teenagers today and Andras Jones was wonderful as the chilling "Jimmy" a beaten obsessed "manaic". Andras gave me goose bumps all the way through. Anthony Rapp was also very good in a supporting role. This is an all together great film, and i recommed it with the highest it can recieve 5 stars.
