THE MOSQUITO COAST (Released to Theaters USA 1986)

Ben Meyers’ Rating: 3.8|5.0 Starsììì 

The Mosquito Coast, after viewing, seems a ridiculous story. But it has impact and the mind, as it continues to unravel the story, concludes that this movie’s story will not allow the audience to forget it any time soon. It is novel and requires involvement to follow the storyline. It is almost rewatchable. Watch for a terrific cast that includes Harrison Ford, Helen Mirren, River Phoenix, and Jadrien Steele.

? Yes? No? Maybe? 

Maybe. The storyline is worth watching. It’s an unusual film but has a unique impact and will not soon be forgotten as it moves through its interpretation of a specific personality type.
