Overview
A new love. A new hometown. Peter Appleton is having the time of his life...by living someone else's life. Directed by Frank Darabont (The Shawshank Redemption, The Green Mile), The Majestic is both a valentine to the movies and the story of one man's discovery of his own integrity.

Jim Carrey plays Peter, a Hollywood screenwriter who stumbles into tiny Lawson, California, with his memory blanked out by an auto accident. There, he's mistaken by the citizenry to be a long-lost war hero...an identity that Peter also comes to believe while restoring the town's shuttered movie palace and romancing the girl (Laurie Holden) he supposedly left behind. It's the perfect life and, perhaps, the perfect lie. But the truth is bound to surface.
