How far should a man go to find his dream? Allie Fox went to the Mosquito Coast. He went too far.
Allie Fox is fed up with an America that "buys junk, sells junk, eats junk." So with a mocking "Goodbye, America! Have a nice day," the brilliant inventor (nine patents, six pending) leads his trusting wife and four children into the remote jungles of Central America to carve out a new society.
After teaming up on Witness, Harrison Ford and director Peter Weir (The Truman Show) reunite for this adventure about utopia gone haywire. A movie icon for Star Wars' Han Solo and Indiana Jones, Ford here explores the dark side of heroism - and creates a spellbinding character from the pages of Paul Theroux's bestseller. Helen Mirren, Martha Plimpton and the late River Phoenix co-star.
