Overview
Superstars Mel Gibson and Sigourney Weaver heat up the screen in this pulse-pounding thriller by acclaimed director Peter Weir ('Witness). Charged with passion, suspense and explosive political intrigue, this riveting adventure is heralded as "fascinating" (Pauline Kael, 'The New Yorker'), "gripping" ('The Motion Picture Guide') and "sizzling" (Gene Shalit, "The Today Show"). And the brilliant cast features Linda Hunt in a historic Oscar®-winning performance --the only time a performer has won for playing a character of the opposite sex! Gibson portrays Guy Hamilton, an Australian reporter on assignment in politically unstable Indonesia who joins forces with a savvy photographer (Hunt) to expose government corruption. But it's Hamilton's connection to the beautiful Jill Bryant (Weaver), an attaché with the British embassy that complicates his life. Their torrid affair grows more and more passionate as the country around them moves ominously to the brink of civil war. But when Jill warns Hamilton to leave, the reporter presses on to expose the truth...even if it costs him his life. With action, romance and nail-biting tension, 'The Year of Living Dangerously' is a mesmerizing experience and "a terrific film" (Gene Siskel, 'Chicago Tribune') you'll never forget.
