Cast Away is a great movie about a plane crash that leaves Chuck Noland (Tom Hanks)
stranded on an island, fighting for his survival. I think Tom Hanks was perfect for this role and
delivered an excellent performance, making it feel as if he really was alone on an island. The
progression of his loneliness was also very well portrayed, making for a dramatic scene when
the water pulls Wilson, the volleyball, out to sea. Besides a few gruesome scenes, I would say it
is kid friendly too. All in all, I think Cast Away is a perfect movie for a family get-together or just
on your own.
