One of John Carpenter’s most distinctive and fascinating films introduces Jeff Bridges as an alien who travels to earth in response to a NASA invitation. Disguising himself as the departed husband of a recently widowed woman, he seeks out a mysterious destination while engaging in an unconventional relationship. Wonderfully weird and oddly romantic, it’s a beautiful ode to what makes us human.
