"...A serious, confidently made film...Well acted by the principals..."

"...Peter Weir in top form..." - Recommended
Sight and Sound - 05/01/1994
"...It's refreshing to see a mainstream Hollywood film that so resolutely refuses to manipulate its audience, but rather invites us to watch and reflect and make up our own minds..."
Variety - 10/18/1993
"...Bridges is transportingly fine, and he manages throughout to convey, without exaggeration, an altered state of mind that rivets the viewer..."
Chicago Sun-Times - 10/15/1993
"...It is unusual for being essentially philosophical and introspective, rather than romantic....FEARLESS is like a short story that shines a bright light, briefly, into a corner where you usually do not look..."
USA Today - 04/08/1994
"...Peter Weir's instant cult movie is more like his mystical Australian works....[Bridges gives] another routinely great performance..."

"[With] the most horrifying plane crash in movie history..."
A middleaged architect with conventional views finds his perspective on life dramatically shifted when he is one of few survivors of a disastrous plane crash. Based on the novel by Rafael Yglesias. Academy Award Nominations: Best Supporting Actress--Rosie Perez.
San Francisco architect and family man Max Klein survives the plane crash that kills his best friend and undergoes a mystical transformation. Having overcome not only his fear of flying, but his fear of death, Max emerges from the crash in a blissed, beatific state -- and finds himself no longer able to engage in normal life. Convinced of his own messianic powers, Max pours all his energies into helping a young Hispanic mother who lost her baby in the crash overcome her grief and crippling guilt. In the process he grows further and further away from his devoted wife and young son until he risks losing them -- and himself -- all together.
