According to film critic Roger Ebert, "when it premiered at the 1980 Cannes Film Festival, it caused a considerable sensation, and [Linda] Manz was mentioned as a front-runner for the best actress award. But back in North America, the film's Canadian backers had difficulties in making a distribution deal, and the film slipped through the cracks". See more »

Out of the Blue (1980) was a showcase of sorts for two actors. One was an up and coming star (Linda Manz) the other was one who was trying to get back into the limelight (Dennis Hopper). The two have managed to pull off their best performances of their careers. I don't think that either of them could ever top it.
The movie is about a shattered family. A tragic accident has landed Don (Dennis Hopper) is prison for running his Big Rig into a stalled school bus. Several years later, his daughter (Linda Manz) who was also involved in the accident is waiting for her father to come back home. She's a wild kid who has no use for authority and likes to spend her time fantasizing about Elvis Pressely and listening to Punk Rock. Mom (Sharon Farrel) is a mess who lives in a constant state of denial. Linda waits for Pop's to get out of prison because she feels that he'll make everything better. Will he?
A great film. Dennis Hopper's acting shines in this film. He also directs with a stylized flair that was apparent in Easy Rider. This film was made during his "down time". After being ostracized from Hollywood due to the mess of The Last Movie and his off screen actions. This was his last stab at trying to get back into the studio system. Linda Manz is great as C.B. But the real reason to watch this movie is Dennis Hopper, he puts on one hell of a show.
