Flashing back to pre Covid-19 times, to get stranded on an island with Tom Hanks in Cast Away. Zemeckis’ film holds up, as does Hanks’ performance and his title as best everyman actor. He really is incredible in this film and the film knocks it out of the park at its highest points. Where those points are in the movie vary greatly among the crew, so take a listen to see who you agree with the most.
