Harrison Ford is best in serious roles, such as here where he plays a Philadelphia police captain on the run from a dirty police chief, and hiding out on an Amish farm. The Amish are portrayed as kind, sensitive, and wise. This film makes you long for the good farm life. The ending makes the movie, when HF walks away from Kelly McGillis, an Amish girl he has fallen in love with, but with whom he realizes he can have no future because their worlds are so dissimilar.   "Check it Out"

The Man from Snowy River
Review
I had forgotten about the famous soundtrack, and hearing the beautiful theme was an unexpected pleasure. I never realized that the tune itself was worked into the plot, as the character of Jessica plays it on the piano. The hero is believable as a socially awkward but fine young man coming of age in the rugged mountain landscape, with herds of horses galloping through. Beautiful. Inspiring.   "Check it Out"
