Since this movie was directed by Peter Weir, starring Mel Gibson and Sigourney Weaver, it sounded really promising and, on top of that, it was definitely one of the coolest titles I have came across. Eventually, the first thing I enjoyed about this movie is that it was dealing with a part of history  that I didn’t know at all.  Furthermore, the story was fairly realistic and quite spellbinding... read more

Guy Hamilton is a journalist on his first job as a foreign correspondent. His apparently humdrum assignment to Indonesia soon turns hot as President Sukarno electrifies the populace and frightens foreign powers. Guy soon is the hottest reporter on the story with the help of his photographer, half- Chinese dwarf Billy Kwan, who has gone native. Guy's affair with diplomat Jill Bryant also helps. Eventually Guy must face some major moral choices and the relationship between Billy and him reaches a crisis at the same time the politics of Indonesia does.

100 Essential Female Film Performances (99 movies items)

"Linda Hunt So your agent tells you about this role where you get to play a Chinese/Australian dwarf of all things; it’s probably not what an aspiring actress would have dreamt of doing, though Hunt is far from your average actress, as anyone who has seen this film can attest to. Aiding an Australian wire journalist during political turmoil in 1965 Indonesia, her pivotal supporting character, Billy Kwan, is the connection between the lead stars, Mel Gibson and Sigourney Weaver. But this role fo"

On top of that, Mel Gibson and Sigourney Weaver both delivered some solid performances and they had some great chemistry together. However, even though I thought it was really a good flick, there was still something that actually really bothered me. Indeed, I thought it was really confusing that Linda Hunt was playing a man.
