In their new overseas home, an American family soon finds themselves caught in the middle of a coup, and they frantically look for a safe escape from an environment where foreigners are being immediately executed.
The story of American Kurt Muse, who, in 1989 was Imprisoned for broadcasting a pirate radio station that propagated dissent against Panamanian dictator, Manuel Noriega, and the saga of his rescue from prison by the U.S. Delta Force.
This is a fun, low-budget movie and I'm just curious if anyone else out there has seen it. I'm pretty sure it only made a short tour around a few art houses. It was a typical 90s post-college "finding yourself" story. In my opinion it had a decent script and a decent director, but acting was hit or miss. Some stood out as unique and well-played, others just stood out. Watch it and you'll see. It was shot in Minnesota and it was the director's first movie (I think he was still a grad student at NYU at the time.) I like it because I think it's part of an eternally small genre of movies that come out in the mid-90s like Singles, Reality Bites, Kicking and Screaming, and those other timeless snapshots of twenty-somethinghood post-Cobain and pre-picket fences. It was the first movie I was ever an extra in and I've searched everywhere for a copy - without any luck. If anyone knows where I can buy one, please email me or better yet post a message here. Thanks.
