The Terminal

The Terminal Summary and Synopsis

This romantic comedy from director Steven Spielberg revolves around an Eastern European man by the name of Viktor Navorski (Tom Hanks), whose plans of immigrating to New York were hastened by a violent coup in his home country. Unfortunately, Viktor finds himself on the wrong end of a nasty technicality while en route to America: His passport was issued from a country, which, during its upheaval, ceased to exist in an official capacity. Unauthorized to leave Kennedy Airport upon his arrival and unable to return home, Viktor finds himself exiled inside the terminal's international transit lounge. Though airport official Frank Dixon (Stanley Tucci) views Viktor as an annoying bureaucratic glitch, other airport employees — including a beautiful flight attendant by the name of Amelia (Catherine Zeta-Jones) — come to see him as a welcome, if unofficial, addition to their numbers. As the days stretch on into months, the terminal transforms from an intimidating atmosphere of forced assimilation into a country within itself, complete with culture, ambition, status, complex diversity, and the need for love. Viktor Navorski is a man without a country; his plane took off just as a coup d'etat exploded in his homeland, leaving it in shambles, and now he's stranded at Kennedy Airport, where he's holding a passport that nobody recognizes. While quarantined in the transit lounge until authorities can figure out what to do with him, Viktor simply goes on living – and courts romance with a beautiful flight attendant. The Terminal Wiki

- Classic5 star

This movie hits yah in the feels always been a favorite of mine and don’t know why

- The land of opportunity5 star

I saw this movie a number of years ago and decided to rewatch it because it is a “feel good” movie that never gets old! The movie makes me nostalgic about NYC and the Tri-State area in general where I grew up, even though most of the movie takes place in JFK airport. I don’t remember JFK very well since it’s been awhile since I flew through there, so it seems like the airport itself could possibly be Newark airport as well. Tom Hanks is in so many exceptional iconic NYC movies and this movie ranks right up there with the best! I loved the nuances of the different characters especially Viktor and Gupta! This movie embodies the true spirit of the American dream. It demonstrates that America is a place that welcomes diversity. It demonstrates that America is a place where even immigrants can experience a sense of belonging. Given the current global pandemic, it seems that many people have forgotten that America is about showing compassion to the less fortunate. This theme is brought up several times in the movie and functions as a “teachable moment.” This lesson proves to still be poignant in contemporary times. I hope that people will rewatch this movie and rely on its narrative to help mitigate the sense of alienation in our current political climate.

Blossbink - Great movie5 star

One of the most enjoyable, light and easy movies I've watched in a long time. Good acting all round. Tom Hanks plays another great role (shades of Forest Gump), where you cannot fail to love him, and also the others who become his supporters. Love it!
