MUBI Presents: John Carpenter’s ‘Starman’

Videology is partnering with the streaming service MUBI, an expertly curated selection of classic, cult, independent and international films from around the globe. Each month, we’ll screen a film based around a theme or director that is currently being featured on the website. One attendee will win a free year-long MUBI subscription!

“Starman contains the potential to be a very silly movie, but the two actors have so much sympathy for their characters that the movie, advertised as space fiction, turns into one of 1984’s more touching love stories.” – Roger Ebert

“If Starman doesn’t make a major difference in Jeff Bridges’ career, Mr. Bridges is operating in the wrong galaxy.” – The New York Times

Answering a NASA message intended for aliens, a space being tries to contact mankind, but an American missile grounds his ship. Scrambling, the so-called Starman (Jeff Bridges) inhabits the body of a late Wisconsinite and kidnaps the dead man’s widow, Jenny Hayden (Karen Allen). Determined to reunite with a vessel from his home planet at a predetermined site, Starman and Jenny travel to Arizona. Pursued by military officials trying to kill him, Starman forges a lasting bond with Jenny.

Dir. John Carpenter. 1984. 115 min.
