After a single, career-minded woman is left on her own to give birth to the child of a married man, she finds a new romantic chance in a cab driver. Meanwhile, the point-of-view of the newborn boy is narrated through voice-over.
A tenacious lawyer takes on a case involving a major company responsible for causing several people to be diagnosed with leukemia due to the town's water supply being contaminated, at the risk of bankrupting his firm and career.
John Travolta plays George Malley, who owns the local auto repair shop in a small California town. After celebrating his birthday with friends at the local bar/hang-out, George heads for home. He pauses to watch a strange light in the sky, then collapses for a few seconds in the middle of the deserted street. In the days and weeks that follow, George finds his IQ and consciousness expanding dramatically, and develops telekinetic abilities. Despite his attempts to explain what has happened to him, with just a very few exceptions, most of the local townspeople treat the "new" George as a freak. His state of isolation becomes even more pronounced when his new-found abilities allow him to correctly predict an earthquake, and outside authorities become interested in what's happened to him.Written by

George is spinning the sunglasses for everyone to see when the TV reporter asks his cameraman if he's "getting this." Camera man gives a thumbs up, however, his camera view is partially obscured by a guy in a brown coat. If the camera is actually pointed to the sunglasses (to a table that is thigh-high), the view would have been obscured even more. See more »

"God damn it. Somethin' happened about 25 years ago when you broke your leg and I set it, George. I don't know what to call it, but uh, somehow you got into my heart more than most. And f... and for a man who's never been a father, I sure feel like I'm losing a son. Yeah. Georgie. Yeah."

Highly, highly recommended love & life story with a twist
I simply LOVE this movie. A celebration of life to be enjoyed & inspired by. I feel sorry for those who don't "get it" but that is their (huge) loss. I can only imagine the joy it must have brought to the director, screenwriter & musicians (wonderful soundtrack thanks Robbie Robertson) involved when they saw the final product. There are so many great "lines", so many great scenes. I've seen the movie about 6 times now and always am moved by the amazing performances of Travolta, Kyra, Whittaker & Duval. You guys were perfect! Definitely among my favorite all-time films. Thank you so much to all the above for making this gem of a movie.
