Human pilot Willis Davidge (Dennis Quaid) and the reptilian Drac pilot Jeriba Shigan (Louis Gossett Jr.) crash-land on a remote and inhospitable planet after a fierce space battle. Forced to team up in order to survive the meteor storms, savage cold, and carnivorous native wildlife, the two conquer language barriers and overcome their cultural differences to eventually develop a mutual understanding that leads to respect and a deep friendship.
Wolfgang Petersen, USA 1985, PG, 108mins
“A story of friendship, understanding and eventual love between the two Robinson Crusoes in space”
“A powerfully-told story about the universal nature of friendship, spectacular in presentation, and acted with authentic heart”
–John Kenneth Muir
