Directed by Steve De Jarnatt.
Starring Anthony Edwards, Mare Winningham, Denise Crosby, John Agar, Lou Hancock, Mykelti Williamson, and Kurt Fuller.
After answering a pay phone at four in the morning and hearing a message warning of all-out nuclear war, a young man must find his new love and try and survive the upcoming Armageddon.
Creating a rare form of genre shifting, high-concept fantasy, Miracle Mile is a memorable blend of anxiety dream, satirical humour and romantic adventure. First written in 1983, writer/director De Jarnatt bought back the rights to his compelling script and took on the project himself five years later. The decision proved to be a excellent one, and today the film stands up extremely well.
Harry (Anthony Edwards, ER, Top Gun) is a young visitor to La who happens to meet the love of his life Julie (Mare Winningham, St Elmo’s Fire) at a local museum.
