Set in Indonesia during the 1965 coup against President Sukarno, Guy Hamilton (Mel Gibson) is an Australian wire-service reporter covering the scene. Whenever Hamilton becomes glib, he is brought back to reality by photographer Billy Kwan (played in drag by actress Linda Hunt in an Academy-Award® winning performance). As Jakarta sinks into disarray, Hamilton pursues a romance with British attaché Jill Bryant (Sigourney Weaver). Filmed on location in the Philippines and Australia, Peter Weir’s film was the first American-Australian co-production. (35mm Presentation)
