Romancing the Stone

Women don’t usually get to be Indiana Jones. A timid romance novelist, who usually keeps her adventuring between the pages, is swept up in a treasure hunt with a cynical and sexy soldier of fortune wearing a very familiar hat. Evoking the jungle adventures of a less critical era (and I mean the 1930s, not the 1980s) Turner and Douglas banter and bargain as they endeavor to trade her kidnapped sister for a treasure map hotly desired by Columbian scoundrels.

“In this cracking jungle-set treasure hunt, director Robert Zemeckis spices up a deliberately old-fashioned matinée adventure with tongue-in-cheek gags, unpredictably clever touches and top-of-the-range action.” -Radio Times
