LOOKING BACK, Cinema's greatest moments...


It's Christmas time and of course there are so many great Christmas classics to choose from for a 'Looking Back'...


I don’t know why I always think of this film at Christmastime... maybe because this arresting Zemeckis masterpiece begins at Christmas when FedEx boss Chuck Noland is torn from his life and the love of his life, Kelly (Helen Hunt), after undergoing a fatal plane crash over the South Pacific. Chuck is the only survivor and, against all odds, subsists on a desert island alone for four years.

Four years later, when everyone from his past had thought him dead, Chuck finally returns to his old life. Having at long last escaped from the island and returned to the world and the people of his past, including Kelly, he finds that the world he left has moved on without him.

The film ends with a beginning… Alive but alone, the death of one life and the hope of a new one, Chuck stands at a crossroads... a new life, a new year, anything is possible... 'I have to keep breathing... For tomorrow the Sun will rise. Who knows what the tide would bring?'
