STARMAN (John Carpenter, 1984 / 115 mins / PG) Answering a NASA message intended for aliens, a space being tries to contact mankind, but an American missile grounds his ship. Scrambling, the so-called Starman inhabits the body of a late Wisconsinite and kidnaps the dead man’s widow, Jenny Hayden. Determined to reunite with a vessel from his home planet at a predetermined site, Starman and Jenny travel to Arizona. Pursued by military officials trying to kill him, Starman forges a lasting bond with Jenny. Starring Jeff Bridges, Karen Allen and Charles Martin Smith

STARMAN contains the potential to be a very silly movie, but the two actors have so much sympathy for their characters that the movie, advertised as space fiction, turns into one of 1984’s more touching love stories.” (Roger Ebert)

“In Mr. Bridges’ hands [his role] becomes the occasion for a sweetly affecting characterization — a fine showcase for the actor’s blend of grace, precision and seemingly offhanded charm.” (The New York Times)
