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
I do totally agree with the comments that another user made on this movie in 2001 . Like him, I saw it for the first time a very long time ago (maybe 15 years or more) and I remember I enjoyed it very much back then. Yesterday, as I was seeking among my old VHS-tapes, I came across "Into the Homeland" and decided to watch it again. But this time, it really surprised me how GOOD this TV-Movie is. It is extremely accurate, well- acted, and the plot is very subtle too. Moreover, there are some elements (I won't tell which ones, since I don't like giving spoilers), which, due allowance being made, remind of a masterpiece treating the same issue, which was released 11 years later, that is to say, American History X. So I sharply encourage people who might see the two comments given so far to check this movie out. Believe me, it is definitely worth watching.
