Product Description:

Director Lawrence Kasdan's GRAND CANYON is an introspective tale of the unlikely friendship of two men from different worlds brought together when one (Kevin Kline) finds himself in jeopardy in the other's (Danny Glover) rough neighborhood. Other characters from disparate Los Angeles origins (including Steve Martin, Alfre Woodard, and Mary-Louise Parker) also cross paths in this soul-searching lament of modern social conflicts.

Plot Synopsis:

The lives of six successful Los Angeles residents become intertwined when they simultaneously deal with the harsh realities of urban life.

Production Notes:

  • The film marks the first time husband-and-wife team Meg and Lawrence Kasdan have worked on a script together. Meg said that one of her motivations for writing a script about inner-city violence was the feeling she had that no one was really safe. "We wanted to talk about the brutality of city life and the dangers we all face." The film addresses random violence in alternating displays of racism and the sometimes-unexpectedly benevolent kindness of others.
  • Two of the stars of this film had previously worked with Kasdan before. Danny Glover appeared in SILVERADO, and Kevin Kline had worked in three previous Kasdan pictures.
  • Before Lawrence Kasdan became a director, he was a prolific screenwriter, having worked for a long time with George Lucas. He cowrote the screenplays for THE EMPIRE STRIKES BACK, RAIDERS OF THE LOST ARK, and RETURN OF THE JEDI.
