Director: Mimi Leder
Cast: Tea Leoni, Morgan Freeman, Robert Duvall, Vanessa Redgrave

As a massive comet is heading towards the Earth, the US government draws up a plan to destroy it or, if that doesn’t work, a plan to save a selected part of the population. This enjoyable disaster movie raises some intriguing moral questions, which are somewhat undermined by the over-sentimental storyline. Scripted by Bruce Joel Rubin and Michael Tolkin.
