Entertainment Reviews:

Los Angeles Times - 04/09/1998
"...Wide-screen action and adventure don't get much more satisfying than this..."
Wall Street Journal - 01/15/2010
"Christopher Plummer is Rudyard Kipling in John Huston's peerless version of the classic Kipling story."

Based on the 1889 short story by Rudyard Kipling. Academy Award Nominations: 4, including Best (Adapted) Screenplay.

Plot Synopsis:
