This political thriller has its origins in an actual event - the disappearance of a young American writer and filmmaker, Charles Horman (John Shea), during a South American military coup. Jack Lemmon stars as Charles' father, Ed Horman, a prominent New York businessman, who comes to the aid of Charles' wife, Beth (Sissy Spacek), in her desperate search for her missing husband. They are led in circles, up blind alleys and are confronted with lies and false hopes from both U.S. and foreign officials. But they frantically trudge on together, overcoming their past differences until the painful, shattering conclusion.

Debuting on DVD on Universal Studio's budget Studio Selections line, this award-winning film deserves a better home-video fate. With no extras (not even a menu), the budget feel is certainly there, but the DVD does deliver a crisp widescreen presentation (along with 2.0 mono sound). Sometimes fancier--and more expensive--DVDs don't even deliver that much, so the complaining has to be kept to a minimum at this price. --Doug Thomas
