Jeff Bridges stars as architect Max Klein in this drama about the survivor of a plane crash who, in the aftermath, loses all sense of fear. Max strikes up a friendship with another survivor (Rosie Perez), who lost her son in the crash, and tries to convince her, through her grief, of the value of life.

directed by Peter Weir

Lead character gains deep spiritual insight/enlightenment after facing death absolutely in a plane crash...This is portrayed beautifully in his complete fearlessness and love for others, but the human mediocre of his previous life creates a tension that challenges his deep realisation, and shows us just how unready humanity is to coming close to God realisation. If you have any spiritual inclination this film will touch you deeply.
Jeff Bridges excels as a survivor of a plane crash from which he emerges not only unscathed, but seemingly invulnerable. His route to recovery involves helping other survivors to come to terms with their own losses and post traumatic stress. This highly watchable film, directed by Peter Weir, is not as heavy as it sounds, with many appealing moments. Clever use of slow motion to emphasise Bridges' disturbed detachment is one example.
