A Far Off Place Review

Disney does the desert, in a very early Reese Witherspoon drama, A Far Off Place. Ethan Embry is unrecognizable as the teen who treks with her and Xhabbo (Sarel Bok) some 1,000 miles across the African desert, on the run from poachers who killed her father. Why they avoid every sign of civilization is a mystery to me, but the yarn is a thrilling one, with the kids facing every obstacle imaginable en route to safety. Fun.
