A heartwarming story of friendship, adventure and courage
A fourteen-year-old boy and his trusted canine friends are shipwrecked and stranded in the wilderness of the pacific northwest with only their wiles to keep them alive.

"Nicely done...boy-and-his-dog tale.  Leonard Maltin's Movie & Video Guide

Editor's Note
A family adventure and classic boy-and-dog tale, FAR FROM HOME follows young Angus (Jesse Bradford), and the deep friendship he shares with his adopted Labrador, Yellow. Living an idyllic life in rural Canada, Angus's world is turned upside down when a boating trip with his father ends in disaster. Stranded and lost in the Canadian wilderness, Angus and Yellow must get by on their wits, while Angus's frantic parents (Mimi Rogers and Bruce Davidson) search desperately for their son. The heartwarming, harrowing saga plays out against a gorgeous Canadian backdrop of mountains, forests, and secluded lakes.

Plot Summary
When teenager Angus McCormick finds a Labrador Retriever, he names the pooch "Yellow" and brings him home. Soon after, Angus and his dad go on a boating trip, taking the boy's newfound friend with them. But a violent storm strikes, capsizing the boat, and Angus and Yellow drift to shore alone. The pair find themselves stranded in the wilderness for weeks on end with only limited supplies. As the family searches for them, Angus and his dog travel through the woods using rugged survival instincts to stay alive -- but their trek is made even more difficult when Angus breaks his arm. Will this troubled pair last long enough to make it back home?

Professional Reviews

Variety
"...The craft is superior....[Bradford] effortlessly demonstrates an instinct talent and charisma..." 01/09/1995

New York Times
"...A survivalist's idyll that finds an exhilarating balance between images of nature's fury and its beauty..." 01/13/1995 p.C10

Sight and Sound
"...Dazzling cinematography....An appealing adventure story in the time-honoured boy-and-his-dog tradition..." 04/01/1995 p.43

Chicago Sun-Times
"...A well-made contemporary adventure....Borsos has done an admirable job in combining respect for nature with an exciting storyline..." 01/13/1995 p.36

San Francisco Examiner 8 of 10
...Far From Home is more low-key and subtle than most kids' adventure movies. The film relies on spare dialogue and underplayed acting, plus spectacular shots of sky, surf, rocks and animals, to provide superior children's entertainment. - David Armstrong

Washington Post 8 of 10
...The bonding [between Angus and Yellow] is intense, and, thanks to sturdy performances by both boy and dog, believable... A warning: This dog is so lovable, so admirable, so godlike, that parents of kids who are begging for a puppy will be hard-pressed to defend their position... Far From Home is about 80 minutes long, which does not feel long enough. - William F. Powers
