Editors Note
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
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?

ReviewSource San Francisco Examiner
Review ...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.

ReviewSource Washington Post
Review ...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.
