Jim Carey is Peter Appleton, a screenwriter in 1950s Hollywood who is riding high with the release of his first motion picture, “Sand Pirates of the Sahara”. That is, until he is targeted by the House Un-American Activities Committee for suspected communist leanings. Appleton is faced with one option: he must confess to this lie or his short career will be over. Devastated, Appleton gets drunk, takes a long drive up the coast and crashes his car off a bridge. When he awakens he finds himself in the small town of Lawson with absolutely no memory of who he is. Here he is mistaken for Luke Trimble, a lost hero of World War II, who like most of the town’s young men, never returned from the war a decade earlier. His reappearance touches the whole town: it inspires Luke’s father to re-open the former life and soul of Lawson, “The Majestic” movie theatre and ultimately helps a community long paralysed with grief to rediscover its lost happiness. Harking back to the legendary Capra-esque years of filmmaking, The Majestic is heart warming, inspirational and altogether a fitting tribute to the kind of movies few dare to make today.
