River Phoenix rose to stardom in this poignant drama from director Sidney Lumet. Ex-radicals Judd and Christine have raised their family in hiding, to flee facing charges from an inadvertent crime they committed as war protestors 15 years earlier. Phoenix was nominated for the Oscar for Best Supporting Actor for his role as Danny Pope, their son who struggles to break out of this fugitive lifestyle.
