Movie Info

Two brothers (Richard Gere, Kevin Anderson) have inherited a large farm (once voted "Farm of the Year") from their father, but cannot keep it afloat. When the farm goes bankrupt, the pair decide to torch the place and take off across the Midwest, fleeing the law to become folk heroes for many rural farmers in the area.

Critic Reviews for Miles from Home

All Critics (5) | Top Critics (1)

A movie about the farm crisis that is sometimes too contrived, but finally very moving as the story of an angry reaction to the squeeze on small farmers.

January 1, 2000 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…

When the movie shows the brothers picking their dangerous path as much from selfishness and arrogance as from desparation, the film has a gritty, believable realism.

December 8, 2017 | Full Review…

Dissipates much of its energy with plot developments reminiscent of "Badlands" and other movies about celebrity lawbreakers.

August 27, 2004 | Rating: 1/5

And miles away from entertainment, too...
