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
