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

Realistic, which makes it even scarier
19 October 2008 | by See all my reviews

TV Guide reported that the producer, Anna Hamilton Phelan, actually went undercover with a white supremacist community to do the background research for this film. She was impressed with how, well, normal these people were except for their agenda. One of my hobbies is following the antics of the white-power movement in the US and Canada, and I could find no flaw in her facts and representation of those involved in the movement. Powers Boothe, C. Thomas Howell, and Paul LeMat are completely believable in their roles. I found myself staying up until 4 am time and time again in 1987 to watch this one from beginning to end. In my opinion, Boothe (and Phelan) deserved a Cable ACE Award for this one. Twenty years later, the message is still relevant. A must-see for all thoughtful, tolerant Americans and others!
