Legend says that Antonio Bay was built in 1880 with blood money obtained from shipwrecked lepers which no one believes. On the eve of the town's centennial, many plan to attend the celebrations, including the murdered lepers.

Jenny Hayden never did get over the death of her husband. So when an alien life form decides to model "himself" on the husband, Jenny is understandably confused if not terrified. The alien, or Starman, as he is called, has a deadline to meet, and kidnaps Jenny in order to meet it. Written by

The movie features a clip from the earlier Columbia Pictures studio film From Here to Eternity (1953) which was at the time about thirty years old. The segment shows the famous beach love scene that featured Deborah Kerr and Burt Lancaster passionately embracing on a beach with the ocean waves tiding in. In the same 1984 year that this movie was released, this film's lead star Jeff Bridges, also starred in another Columbia Pictures film called Against All Odds (1984). That picture's main movie poster has been likened to From Here to Eternity (1953). The Against All Odds (1984) love beach shot on the movie poster also became very famous though it did not feature sea water like the earlier picture. See more »

Through the eyes of an alien, we view our world. Such is the beauty of John Carpenter's 'Starman'. His gentle alien comes in the form of a human clone (Jeff Bridges), and as we watch him interact with the rest of our race, we see both the good and the bad in all of us. It is this particular role that I find to be Jeff Bridge's most superb acting (or close to it, given his amazing work in 'The Fisher King'). To me he always did seem an alien in an unfamiliar human body, rather than the actor "Jeff Bridges". While there is certainly some over-simplification in the movie, and it can get a little sappy, I find the 'sap' in this case to be both touching and beautiful. How wonderful, how sad, how miraculous, to watch ourselves through the innocent and wise eyes of this alien being. A brilliant look at human beings, a sweet love story, and an excellent exploration of our spirit.
