Running on Empty

Running on Empty

Teenage Danny is growing up in a very strange family. His parents are responsible for a bomb attack in the early 70s and have been on the run from the FBI ever since. Immediately after Daniel, Sidney Lumet asks again whether children should be burdened with their parents’ choices. River Phoenix stars in his only Oscar-nominated role. A heartbreaking film which was one of Akira Kurosawa’s favorites.
