Peter Weir directs this visionary tale of ordinary folk transformed by extraordinary events to tragic and transcendent ends. Jeff Bridges delivers one of his most unforgettable performances as Max, an architect who survives a horrific plane crash unscathed. But Max’s family might not be so lucky, as the experience has left the now shamanistic survivor seemingly beyond the reach of his wife (a deeply anchored Isabella Rossellini) and son (Spencer Vrooman). Rosie Perez plays “the other woman” Carla, whose overwhelming grief may prove to be the panacea for both her and Max. Finally presented in its correct wide screen aspect ratio, Weir and cinematographer Allen Daviau’s vision comes to breathtaking Blu-ray from a sparkling new master. Also stars Tom Hulce, John Turturro, Benicio Del Toro, and John De Lancie. Adapted for the screen by Rafael Yglesias from his own novel.
