Retro Trailer: "Far From Home" (1989)
Drew Barrymore stars in this low budget thriller as 14 year old Joleen Cox, an angsty teen who is finishing a cross country trip with her dad when they run out of gas in a small desert town in Nevada. They wind up stuck in an old trailer park full of every stereotypical trashy character you can think of. While Joleen's father is searching for gas and chatting up fellow stranded drivers, Joleen catches the eye of two of the local boys. Admist all this, there's a killer on the loose, who seems to be targeting Joleen. Although the plot is somewhat predictable, everyone in the cast delivers a great performance, helping to balance out the slow start and predictability. It's available on Netflix Instant Watch and worth a look, especially to see performances by a young Drew Barrymore and Jennifer Tilly.
