This jour­ney into the mys­tic starts, jar­ringly, with a plane crash. Max (Jeff Bridges) sur­vives and is trans­formed into a Christ­like fig­ure who can no longer re­late to his wife Laura (Is­abella Ros­sellini) and is drawn to fel­low sur­vivor Carla (Rosie Perez). Peter Weir’s film is a haunt­ing ac­count of grief and loss, with pas­sages of oth­er­worldly beauty.
