Multiple Academy Award-winner Tom Hanks "gives one of the towering screen performances of all time" (New York Post) in this inspiring tale about survival of the human spirit. Tom Hanks stars as Chuck Noland, a FedEx systems engineer whose ruled-by-the-clock existence abruptly ends when a harrowing plane crash leaves him isolated on a remote island. As Chuck struggles to meet the basic needs of survival, he discovers that his true presonal journey, has only just begun. Hailed by critics and audiences alike as the must-see movie of the year, "Cast Away" is "a unique, exhilarating stunner that will take your breath away." (Rex Reed, New York Observer).
