Harrison Ford and director Peter Weir reunite for this adventure about utopia gone haywire. Ford plays a brilliant inventor (nine patents, six pending), who leads his devoted wife (future Academy AwardÃ' winner* Helen Mirren) and four children into the remote jungles of Central America to carve out a new society, but instead faces the ultimate test of survival. River Phoenix (who would go on to play Young Indy in Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade) and Martha Plimpton also star in this spellbinding adaptation (by Taxi Driver screenwriter Paul Schrader) of Paul Theroux's bestseller.
