Audience Reviews for Far from Home

Welcome to mid-drift USA. I know it's hard to imagine, but this film takes place in a world before cellphones where people could actually be stranded. In Far From Home, preteen rape bate Drew Barrymore, her irresponsible writer dad, and some strangers become stuck in a probably radioactive trailer town in the Nevada desert because of a gas shortage. A series of mysterious homicides ensue, and the action lies somewhere in-between a palpable nightmare and a Sunday afternoon made-for-tv movie. Serious props to the stellar screaming and bad parenting acted out by Susan Tyrrell. Tagline: A highly philosophical x-con uses a sniper riffle--hip or dangerous?

Don't waste ur time. Terrible script and acting. Just an overall weird movie about an emo teen visiting a creepy trailer park town with rapists and murdering teens. One of those movies drew Barrymore probably Regrets ever making. Pinky lol with his remote.

I liked this dramatic thriller, it stars a teenage Drew Barrymore, and the rest of the cast is good too. The story is surprising and suspenseful, it's a good movie.
