8.30PM, 9GO! ★★★
The heart of this film (Tom Hanks hopelessly stranded on a remote deserted island) is magnificent. Ignore the sappy beginning and ending, and focus instead on some great acting from Hanks and the atmospheric direction of Robert Zemeckis. A one-man series of Survivor where no one gets voted off – that’s a recommendation, not a threat.
Marooned: Tom Hanks in Cast Away.
