About the Movie
Struggling actor John Person (Jon Favreau) is hopelessly mired in debt. But things start to look up when he receives an offer from a strange man that could solve all his financial woes. All he has to do is deliver a blue suitcase to a cowboy in the small California desert town of Baker. Once there, however, John discovers he's part of a situation that's way over his head.

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: The Big Empty is much more a romantic fable than Swingers, the singles comedy that established Favreau but has a similarly jovial, unpretentious charm.
Fresh: More amiable than laugh-out-loud funny.
The Big Empty
Thank goodness for indie films and the IFC! This is a nice little piece of genuine science fiction done correctly. It's tongue-in-cheek, wonderfully photographed in the high desert with a killer blues soundtrack. A great cast of indie actors headed up by the ubiquitous Jon Favreau, and including beautiful Rachel Leigh Cook as Ruthie. Indie fans and science fiction readers rejoice! Watch this film many times.
One of my favorite films!!!!
