In 1977 Voyager II was launched into space, inviting all lifeforms in the universe to visit our planet. Get ready. Company's coming. John Carpenter's Starman is a spellbinding mix of gentle humour, romance and science fiction wizardry. Jeff Bridges received an Oscar nomination as Best Actor (1984), and Karen Allen provides excellent co-starring support. An alien explorer from a far-off planet (Bridges) plummets to Earth. His unearthly masters give him three days to live as a man - and then he must return. In those three days he learns not just to live, but to love. Guided by a beautiful, lonely young widow (Allen), he embarks on a desperate 2000-mile race against time and the might of the US army.
