2004’s film, The Terminal stars Tom Hanks as Viktor Navorski, a native of Krakozia, who upon his arrival in the New York airport, JFK, finds that while he was flying, a coup broke out in his country and his nation is no longer recognized by the United States government, meaning his passport is not recognized, and therefore he cannot leave the Airport – at least until his county’s government is recognized.
This leads to Viktor with nothing to do but make a temporary life for himself in the airport. He has many things to surmount, like where will he get money for food, where will he sleep – you know: How will he live.
It turns out that Viktor is an intelligent, imaginative guy and he makes due, quite well. Along the way, he meets Catherine Zeta Jones, as an air hostess, and he falls for her, hard. That part of his adventure is a bit of a roller coaster. Persevering and even finding a well paying, under the table job working construction with a crew renovating the airport, Viktor waits. He came to New York in order to complete a task his father had started, and out of respect Viktor is determined to complete (watch the movie to see what that is!). Much gets in his way, but Viktor is determined.
This is a feel good movie, and isn’t a bad movie – so don’t think that it is because I posted it here!
Check out the movie, and check out the trailer here:
