Plot Summary

Considered to be the film that launched him into stardom, Ed Harris stars as Jimmy Wing, a small town Florida newspaper reporter who has all but given up on his life and career. Wing has become beleaguered and amoral, accepting bribes from a local politician to write slanderous articles about an environmental activist group who are protesting the development of an ecologically devastating real-estate project. However, the more he investigates the group, the more intrigued he becomes by it. As his interests shift to favor the environmental group, he puts himself in dangerous standing with the corrupt politicians bankrolling him. In typical Harris fashion, the character he portrays isn't absolutely good or evil; he's simply human - for better or worse. From IFC Films, Victor Nunez's (Ulee’s Gold, Ruby in Paradise) heartfelt piece of American independent cinema was nominated for the Sundance Film Festival’s Grand Jury Prize and is ripe for rediscovery.

Customer Reviews


One of the best movies I have ever seen.

This is a great movie, but not for everybody

not only does Ed Harris perform greatly, but the description of the 60s Californian society is just perfect, with its mix between idealism and realism. Self indulgence, pragmatism, respect, group dynamics, local thinking are all themes extremely well described in the movie

If you like Nunez

A great movie. Boring only if you are unfamiliar with the director's style. I still have my original VHS copy of this movie. I'm afraid to let it go for fear of losing access to this film. I'm glad to see it's available on itunes.
