The Essential John Sayles: Return of the Secaucus Seven (1980) / Lianna (1983) / Brother From Another Planet

An eclectic and unmissable collection from a great American director. 'Return of the Secaucus Seven' is John Salyes' engaging debut, looking at seven friends who reunite ten years after their radical college days for a dramatic, poignant and revelatory weekend. The director even has a small role as 'Howie'. 'Lianna' is a young wife and mother who leaves her husband for another woman and embarks on a turbulent journey of self-discovery. And 'Brother From Another Planet' is an off-beat sci-fi starring Joe Morton as a human-looking alien who comes to Earth and finds our ways difficult to comprehend.
