Academy Award winner Ron Howard directs this epic tale of immigration and adventure. Academy Award nominee Tom Cruise stars as a poor Irishman in love with a wealthy woman, stunningly played by Academy Award winner Nicole Kidman. When they take their class-crossed relationship to turn-of-the-century America, they begin an unforgettable adventure across the west! A truly beautiful film about a subject not often captured in cinema. The scenes of the Land Rush at the climax of the film rank among some of the most exciting ever filmed.
