Young Australian journalist Mel Gibson takes his first assignment in Indonesia during the 1965 coup. As the violence escalates, he has an intense affair with British journalist Sigourney Weaver. Linda Hunt ("Kindergarten Cop," "Pocohantas") won a well-deserved Oscar as Gibson's male photographer friend and jealous rival. A powerfully evocative political thriller with fascinating scenes of Asian culture. Academy Award-winner Gibson ("Lethal Weapon," "Braveheart," "Ransom"), Oscar and Golden Globe-nominee Weaver ("Alien ," "Ghostbusters," "Copycat"), and Hunt are joined by Michael Murphy ("Batman Returns," TV's "Dead Ahead: The Exxon Valdez Disaster"). Oscar-nominee Peter Weir ("Master and Commander: The Far Side of the World," "Dead Poets Society") wrote and directed.
