This movie is even better than the Nevil Shute novel upon which it is based.
25 July 2000 | by (Ellicott City, Maryland) – See all my reviews

Unlike most movies, which are pale copies of the books that inspired them, The Far Country is even better than the Nevil Shute novel upon which it is based. The movie reminds me of A Town Like Alice, also a Shute story, in that it moves from World War II Europe to Australia and tells of two young people making a new life in that far country. The story is excellent, and the actors are more than capable. Anyone who likes a good adventure/romance should try this film.
