Steven Spielberg's engaging romantic dramedy saw Tom Hanks play a mild-mannered Eastern European who finds himself trapped in an airport terminal when his country literally ceases to exist. The film was a real departure for Spielberg, who is more commonly known for large-scale films instead of a one-set film like this. Hanks' understated performance as the hapless immigrant who's trying to survive in a working airport is a highlight, as is Catherine Zeta-Jones' intriguing performance as an airline hostess.
