Exceptional Sci-fi Film
As we all probably know, we have launched Voyager II into space inviting any other lifeforms to come visit us. What if an alien species did pick this message up and decided to visit us? That's the concept behind Starman. Starman's particular breed of species stumbles upon Voyager II and sends one of its own (the Bridges character) to visit Earth. However,in spite of our invitation, American government and military personnel, perceiving this as some kind of threat of invasion, have the Starman's ship shot down upon reaching Earth. The ship crashes in some woods of Wisconsin and then enters the home of a widow, assuming the identity of her recently deceased house painter husband (Bridges) via hair in a photo album. The Starman then has the widow (Allen) drive him cross country to Arizona to meet the mother ship in 3 days. This journey becomes complicated by their pursuit of the military and government agents who want to take the Starman and study him.
What's interesting about this movie in the beginning it appears like it could be a possible thriller/(horror, maybe) because we do not know anything about the Starman at first or what his (its) intentions are exactly. However, as the movie progresses, the Starman gradually grows more human and not robot-like like it was initially. Superior acting by Bridges.
