In 1971, Arthur and Annie Pope blew up a napalm lab to protest the war. Ever since then they have been on the run from the FBI. They chose their lives. Now their son must choose his.
(USA / Sidney Lumet / 1988)
Nominated for Academy Awards for Best Supporting Actor and Best Original Screenplay
“Lumet is one of the best directors at work today, and his skill here is in the way he takes a melodramatic plot and makes it real by making it specific.”
- Roger Ebert
