Storyline

Deep within the shadowy world of paramilitary white-supremacist movements, Into the Homeland is the story of an anguished father's search for his kidnapped daughter. Ex-cop Jackson Swallow (Powers Boothe) follows his daughter's trail to a sleepy Wyoming town, which he soon realizes is home to a violent right-wing group, the American Liberation Movement. Infiltrating the group, Swallow becomes a bodyguard to it's Hitler-like leader, Derrick Wesley (Paul Le Mat), and learns that Wesley's son Tripp (C. Thomas Howell) knows where his daughter can be found. Swallow has one chance to find his daughter - turn Tripp against the group and his own father, while keeping his true identity secret. The desperate struggle of wills turns terrifyingly violent in the explosive climax. Written by Anonymous

Underrated and emotional film
6 December 2001 | by (El Paso, TX) – See all my reviews

It's sad that more people haven't heard of or seen this made-for-cable feature. I saw it with my father years ago and its message was very powerful. Great performance by Powers Boothe (Lambda Chi Alpha alumnus!) as an unfaithful husband who realizes his obligation to his family when his daughter falls in love with Tripp (C. Thomas Howell), the son of a white supremacist camp leader (Le Mat), and disappears. Very emotional at its climax; worth picking up if you can find it!
