Return of the Secaucus Seven

The visionary writer-director behind such films as "Passion Fish", "Lone Star" and "Sunshine State", Oscar-nominee John Sayles has been at the forefront of the independent film movement for more than twenty years. In this, his "triumphant directorial debut" (Los Angeles Times), Sayles delivers an "utterly engaging" (Time) look at seven friends who reunite ten years after their radical college days for a dramatic, poignant and revelatory weekend. Hailed by critics as "delightful" (The Washington Post), "irresistible" (The Boston Globe) and "a minor miracle" (The San Francisco Examiner), "Return of the Secaucus Seven" inspired the later hit film "The Big Chill" and heralded the arrival of a brilliant new force in independent cinema.
