"I've never been a man of great conviction. I never saw the percentage in it."
Take a nostalgic trip back to America's Golden Age with tonight's Primetime Movie, The Majestic, a Frank Capra-inspired drama from three-time Oscar-nominated writer-director Frank Darabont (The Shawshank Redemption).
Jim Carrey (I Love You Phillip Morris) stars as Peter Appleton, a young screenwriter working in '50s Hollywood who accidentally drives his car off of a bridge after accusations of Communist leanings cost him his job and movie star girlfriend. Appleton survives, washing up on a beach in a small town called Lawson, but he is stricken with amnesia. The locals believe him to be a hometown boy named Luke who never came back from the war and treat him like a hero; however, not everyone in town believes that Luke has really returned and federal agents are still hot on Peter's trail. Martin Landau and Laurie Holden also star. »
