Strong cast and I enjoyed the visuals that accompanied the melodramatic plot. The chemistry between leading characters worked for me and as the movie flowed I empathized with the farm boys' plight.

This movie is a reflection of what Iowa was really like at that time in the 80's. Growing up here all I remember hearing about is how tough it was for farmers and many were losing their farms at the time. Wonderful movie. Yes, its not a Hollywood blockbuster, but if you understand what it was like growing up here then you'd agree.

There are three easy ways of losing money - racing is the quickest, women the most pleasant, and farming the most certain. - Lord Amherst

An oldie but a goodie ('88) ... not well rated online, but I really enjoyed it, directed by Gary SInise starring Richard Gere & Kevin Anderson with Penelope Ann Miller, Helen Hunt, John Malkovich, Laurie Metcalfe, Brian Dennehy ....

Two brothers lose their Iowa farm, and the older one (Gere) is so tortured by this failure that he burns the farm down and drags his brother along on an aimless run from the law. The story would have been stronger if we were given more of a backstory of what happened between his childhood (a brief glimpse is shown at the beginning) and the foreclosure of their home.

Another great movie that brings it home! This movie was made in Iowa, where I come from, and I remember when stuff like this was going on in the rural mid-west. It makes you heartsick. Richard Gere plays the older brother. This is a great story of what the government and big corporations did to the small farmers. Its a pitty. These brothers became rebels when pushed too far!

Early work worth seeing. Gere is promising as he developes his skills right before your very eyes.

This movie shows the bond between farmers and the land they work. It also shows what farmers will do when enough is enough.

A bizarre mix of buddy flick, road movie, and social commentary. Gary Sinise does a fine job in the director's chair and the cast is great. Good subject matter and a few cameos, but it still feels like this film is missing an ingredient or two.

The best part would definitely be the chase scene down that gravel road...
