"TWO THUMBS UP!"
-Ebert & Roeper
Two-time Academy Award-winner Kevin Spacey and Academy Award nominee Jeff Bridges star in this spellbinding, often humorous story of a mysterious stranger who defies convention, puzzles the experts and leaves everyone searching for the truth.
A stranger who calls himself Prot (Spacey) seemingly appears out of nowhere following a disturbance at New York's Gran Central Staton. Claiming to come from the distant planet K-PAX, Prot draws the attention of jaded Dr. Powell (Bridges), whyose initial skepticism soon turns to fascination and amazement. Even a team of leading scientists are at a loss to explain Prot's detailed knowledge of the star system he call home. But with Prot's return to K-PAX fast approaching, the search for answers intensifies and the mystery takes on pulse-quickening proportions.
Featuring unforgettable performances and surprising turns, it's a thrilling story that "Keeps you guessing right to the end!" (ABC Radio)
I've only seen this movie once and all I can recall about it is that I didn't like it. With my VCR broken and with absolutely no desire to buy this on DVD, I doubt I'll ever give it a second watch.
