Dir. Robert Zemeckis. 2000, 143 mins. With Tom Hanks, Helen Hunt. A Federal Express executive survives a plane crash and winds up on a remote Pacific island, where he must learn how to survive. Hanks’s tour de force performance captures the grueling physical journey as well as the complex emotional transformation. Like all Zemeckis’s best films, this is a cinematic triumph that is as deeply moving as it is entertaining.
