      Cast Away, directed by Robert Zemeckis is rated PG-13 by the Motion Picture Association of America for intense action sequences and some disturbing images. The original release date was December 22, 2000 for United States audience. This movie falls in the genre of Adventure/Drama and stars Tom Hanks as Chuck Noland and Helen Hunt as Kelly Frears.

      Chuck Nolan is in for the longest flight of his life. While making a routine trip, his

      plane crashes in the middle of nowhere out at sea. He is the only survivor of the crash and is forced to take refuge on a deserted island. There he turns to his basic skills of survival. With no one to help him or to talk to, he begins going stir crazy until he created an imaginary friend named ‘Wilson’…actually a volleyball.

      The entire duration of the film is sole based on this one ...

      • man and his ordeal on the deserted island. From the first initail setup where he has to make himself a home for his lengthy stay, to finding food and so on. You will also notice his physical change from a chubby, well fed FedEx executive to that of a skinny, half starved island dweller.

        After many years, he makes himself a boat and sets adrift to find civilization, losing his close friend Wilson on

        the way, his hourney has now become a bitter one. After being rescued out at sea and finding his way back home, hoping to finally be reunited with his gilfriend of the past, he finds that she is married and has moved on with her life. Sad huh!

        Watch it and come to your own conclusion…I think it was relatively ok, but the drawn out stay on the island killed the joy for me.

    It was an story of man want to reach this home to see his wife after many attempts he finally came out from the island which he is was trapped. But at last he knows that single life is more beautiful than with family but in another way there is no one to care for him

    I think single life is more beautiful without tensions and many problems than a family man
    Vejendla yaswanth says :

    It’s all about love - about the difficulty of finding it in a world obsessed with success, about the freakish accidents that can produce or destroy it, about an ordeal that led one man to re-think what is meaningful in life, and about the need to bring to the pursuit of love the same resourcefulness and courage that enabled the hero to survive on an island for 5 years.

    Tom Hanks is superb as Chuck Noland - creating immense sympathy for an ordinary guy trapped - not against his will - in a job that is eating him alive. How many actors could have made Noland’s attachment to “Wilson” believable? Yet Hanks does.

    Everything about it works, the cinematography, the locations, the acting, the story and this is Robert Zemeckis’ greatest showpiece. Tom Hanks has done some bad roles over the years but this is as brilliant as any Jimmy Stewart performance captured on film. I revisit this film about once a year and find things about it that make it even better with each viewing. The story is so well written in its simplicity, and Helen Hunt and Hanks have an amazing chemistry. It is a love story with action and heartbreak like few films have been able to pull together. I guarantee you will never pass a Wilson volleyball again without a big smile
