Temple Bar, in Dublin's city center, was shut down for at least three months to accommodate the construction of the Molly Kay's bordello street set. Local shops and businesses were well compensated for the inconvenience. Despite that, the entire street set is only glimpsed briefly during the film. See more »
The race for land starts at Noon. In the short time portrayed (5-10 minutes), Joseph and Shannon stake a claim and the Sun is low in the sky, indicating that it is late afternoon. However, there are still claimants riding horses at high speed. We believe that horses can not run at high speeds over long periods. See more »
I thought this movie was very well done. It is an overlooked treasure. Ron Howard is a great film maker and he deserves more credit for this film. I'm a huge Ron Howard fan and I felt that this film was no better than any of his work done thus far. The dialog was a bit hard to understand, but the plot, acting and directing are what make the movie so great. Nicole Kidman is so beautiful in the movie and she really carries the movie with her charisma. Tom Cruise plays his part very well. The scenery in the movie is some of the best I've ever seen. It is easy to lose yourself in this movie. I would recommend this movie to anyone I know.
