The Majestic

In the tradition of the films of Frank Capra comes this 1950s fable featuring Jim Carrey as a blacklisted Hollywood screenwriter who, left with amnesia after a car accident, winds up in a small coastal town where he's mistaken for a supposedly dead World War II hero. Accepted by the townspeople and the vet's girlfriend (Laurie Holden) and father (Martin Landau), with whom he helps to restore the local movie theater, Carrey's real past comes under scrutiny when anti-communist "witch-hunters" come looking for him. Frank Darabont ("The Green Mile") directs.
