Hammerman Ikon Film Guide

Director: Peter Weir
Cast: Jeff Bridges, Rosie Perez, Isabella Rosselini, John Turturro, Tom Hulce, Benicio del Toro, Deirdre O'Connell, John de Lancie

Peter Weir's brilliant drama tells a story of a heroic plane crash survivor who is unable to return to his former life, but not because he is traumatised. Jeff Bridges is awesome in the lead, and so is Rosie Perez in a rare dramatic role as a fellow survivor who lost her child. This heartfelt film is poignant and endlessly rich in detail. Scripted by Rafael Yglesias from his own novel.
