Product description

Jenny Hayden, rimasta vedova e senza figli di Scott, viene destata una notte da uno strano splendore nel soggiorno della sua casetta. Un fenomeno assurdo e terrorizzante si produce sotto i suoi occhi: in pochi minuti, il corpo di un neonato si trasforma e Jenny lo vede diventare bambino, adolescente ed uomo fatto. Ma la cosa più incredibile è che l'uomo in questione è identico al defunto marito. Lo sconosciuto, che sembra conoscere solo alcune parole o espressioni americane, fa salire la donna sulla di lei macchina e la prega di condurlo subito in una località dell'Arizona. E' lontano, ma "loro" lo aspettano là e, se non arriva sul posto entro tre giorni, egli è destinato a morire. Così comincia la straordinaria avventura di Jenny con un alieno, in missione sulla terra (dove, a quanto lui dice, la sua gente scese, giusto in Arizona, tanto tempo fa...). Le autorità della Difesa ed i servizi segreti sono al corrente dell'accaduto (perché il mezzo che ha portato giù l'alieno è stato intercettato e distrutto, suscitando interrogativi e problemi): i due sono inseguiti, ma riescono sempre a cavarsela, mentre nella loro fuga mille episodi e piccoli incidenti anche curiosi ed ameni non tardano a verificarsi. Jenny, dopo le prime paure, è affascinata dallo sconosciuto, che è il ritratto vivente di Scott, presto essa si innamora di lui, lui non è da meno, malgrado una certa goffaggine e così il galattico scopre l'amore. La caccia accanita ai fuggiaschi è ormai alla stretta finale: i soldati vengono attestati, protetti da un nugolo di elicotteri dell'esercito, sull'orlo di un enorme cratere dell'Arizona. Puntuale all'appuntamento, è là che scende una gigantesca astronave e l'alieno, investito da un raggio...

From Amazon.co.uk

Starman is easily director John Carpenter's warmest and most beguiling film, and the only one that ever earned him an Oscar nomination. While most movie buffs are likely to call Halloween the best movie from Carpenter, die-hard romantics and anyone who cried while watching E.T. will vote in favour of the director's 1984 hit.

Jeff Bridges is the alien visitor to Earth who is knocked off course and must take an interstate road trip to rendezvous with a mothership from his home planet. To complete this journey he assumes the physical form of the dead husband of a Wisconsin widow (Karen Allen) who responds first with fear, then sympathy, and finally love. Carpenter's graceful strategy is to switch the focus of this E.T.-like film from science fiction to a gentle road-movie love story, made believable by the memorable performances of Bridges and Allen. It's a bit heavy-handed with tenacious government agents who view the Starman as an alien threat (don't they always?), but Carpenter handles the action with intelligent flair, sensitivity and lighthearted humour. If you're not choked up during the final scene, well, you just might not be human. --Jeff Shannon, Amazon.com

On the DVD: Starman on disc is presented in anamorphic widescreen transferred from NTSC and letterboxed at 2.35.1. The picture is clear and sharp with very little grain. The soundtrack is crisp, perfectly complementing the romantic nature of this film. The overriding reason to shell out on this special edition is the commentary from John Carpenter and Jeff Bridges, in which director and actor show a genuine affection for the film. Other extras are a featurette filmed around the original release in 1884, a music video starring Bridges and costar Karen Allen covering The Everly Brothers classic "All I Have to Do is Dream", and a trailer for Close Encounters of the Third Kind. --Kristen Bowditch --This text refers to an alternate DVD edition.
