A young Irish couple flee to the States, but subsequently struggle to obtain land and prosper freely.
Director Ron Howard wasn't happy with Nicole Kidman's facial reaction during the shooting of the scene where her character lifts the bowl covering Joseph's (her husband Tom Cruise's) crotch. Without telling Kidman, he asked Cruise to remove his underwear. Howard got the reaction he wanted, and it appears in the film.
Pretend you love me.
Joseph Donnelly: I pretend I love you.
Shannon Christie: I pretend I love you, too.
Shannon falls off her horse into the muddy water, submerged nearly to her neck. The next time we see her on her horse, her white shirt is dry and pristine.
Near the end of the credits, special thanks are given to, among others, Fungi the Dingle Dolphin.
