Deep in the forests of the Pacific Northwest of America, isolated from society, a devoted father (Viggo Mortensen) dedicates his life to transforming his six young children into extraordinary adults.

Directed by Nicolas Roeg, UK, 2hrs 16mins

Starring David Bowie, Candy Clark, Rip Torn and Buck Henry

Space alien (David Bowie in his first film role) crash lands on Earth, seeking help for his drought-stricken planet. Using alien technology he becomes a fabulously wealthy industrialist threatening the very fabric of American corporate power. However, money, sex and alcohol take their toll on this innocent visitor and compromised he fears his true identity will be revealed and his freedom will be taken from him by malevolent authorities. Romantic, mind-bending and poetic in equal measure, the film remains one of both Bowie the actor and celebrated maverick British director Roeg's (Don't Look Now) finest achievements. A key British film of the 1970s which is still ahead of its time. This is a 40th anniversary restoration from the original negative meaning the film has never looked this good... which is saying something.
